Title: Seismic Resilience and Risk Assessment of the Yield-Link® Brace Connection - Part 4
Date: Thursday, September 14, 2023
Time: 11:00 AM PT
Duration: 1.50 Hours

This webinar has already taken place. A recording of the webinar will be available here, typically within one day.


Join us for part four of our four-part webinar series, where we will focus on how to achieve seismic resiliency in steel construction using the Seismic Performance Prediction Program (SP3) by Haselton Baker Risk Group. Relied on by many structural engineers, SP3 distills years of research into user-friendly software to enable a comprehensive building-specific seismic risk assessment that can be completed at the rapid pace of a design office.

This final webinar, being held on September 14, will take a more in-depth look into the new Yield-Link brace connection (YLBC) addition into the SP3 software, including the methodology and research behind the SP3 assessment, the structural fragility of the YLBC, the structural response prediction engine, and how the YLBC can be used to create resilient design for functional recovery in structural steel buildings.

Join the founder and CEO of Haselton Baker Risk Group, Curt Haselton, and Simpson Strong-Tie Director of Codes and Compliance Jeff Ellis for a one-hour webinar plus a live Q&A session, where you’ll discover solutions for seismic resilience and risk assessment in steel construction.

NOTE: The webinar presentation and Q&A session will be one and a half hours long.

As a result of attending this webinar, you should be able to:

  • Identify the importance of community resilience and reference several design and building solution resources.
  • Describe the FEMA P-58 Seismic Risk Assessment method and how it can quantify enhanced performance.
  • Explain how using the Yield-Link brace connection can lead to more resilient structural steel buildings.
Continuing education credits will be offered for this webinar. Participants can earn one professional development hour (PDH) for attending the first hour of the webinar. Contact training@strongtie.com with any questions.
