Gabriel will be focusing on:
• Diaphragm Loading Criteria
• Effects of Interaction with Other Structural Components (P-Delta Effects, Irregularities, etc)
• Force Evaluation at Diaphragm Components (Diaphragm, Chords, Collectors)
• Deformation of Diaphragms.
The Load Path & Secrets of Detailing Macro Seminar will be held at The Grand Event Center located at 4101 Willow Street in Long Beach, California. Learn more about the seminar at www.seaosc.org.
