Intended Audience: Civil, Structure and Geo-Technical Engineers.


The objective of this course is to assist a licensed design professional, practicing structural engineers, forensic structural engineers, consulting engineers, building officials, educators, students and/or a licensed general contractor to deeply know, and understand the structural analysis, design, detailing, and construct-ability of cast-in-place concrete diaphragms. The importance of this course lies in the fact that there are no a sufficient number of references dealing with this topic, so this course was designed to be a guide for the structural engineer.

Learning Objectives

At the successful conclusion of this course, you’ll be able to identify and discuss:
  • Knowing the multiple roles of diaphragms for resisting gravity and lateral forces in buildings.
  • Knowing the diaphragm components.
  • Understanding the diaphragm behavior and design principles.
  • Knowing the diaphragm design forces
  • Knowing the collector design forces
  • Learning the diaphragm stiffness modeling
  • Learning how to analyze and design diaphragms with openings
  • Learning how to analysis and design of ramps
  • Knowing the various diaphragm modeling and analysis approaches
  • Understanding finite element modeling of a diaphragm and how to do that
  • Learning how to design a diaphragm with a large opening
  • Learning how to design partial-depth collectors
  • Understanding diaphragm shear distribution
  • Learning how to design diaphragm slabs on the ground
  • Knowing the various issues related to detailing and construct-ability
