Architects play a crucial role in seismic safety and are especially integral when it comes to designing nonstructural components that are resistant to earthquakes. Earthquake damage to nonstructural components, like partitions, ceilings, glazing, and cladding, and MEP systems can cause serious safety issues to occupants and contribute to building downtime after an event. In recent U.S. earthquakes, nonstructural failures have also been the largest source of financial losses. In this free webinar hosted by the Applied Technology Council (ATC) about FEMA E-74, Reducing the Risks of Nonstructural Earthquake Damage, you will learn about the basic principles behind seismic resistant design of nonstructural components and the role you can play in reducing seismic risk of these elements. Architects are a prime audience for this webinar.
