Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper covers topics related to advanced structural analysis and design. The paper will have a specific focus on lateral and dynamic loading, specifically as applied to buildings. Structural dynamics will be covered considering single and multiple degrees of freedom structures. Application to structural design for earthquakes specific to steel structures will also be covered.
