I have been asked to design the beam to beam connections and beam to column connections for a new project that is located in Seismic Design Category D. I have review ASCE 7-10 and Seismic Provision 341-10. My understanding is that for the beam to beam connections I can basically use single shear typical connections. but for the bracing I will have to add some over strength factors and make adjustment.
Anyone have any tips? or comments that I need to review. I have never designs an heavy industrial building in this Seismic Zone.
