A seminar on the topic “A Technical Discussion On Detailing Of RCC Special Moment Frames (SMF)” was organized by Binyash Engineering and ESI (Engineering Solution & Ideas) on May 5, 2023. The seminar was held at the Binyash Engineering office in Dhaka, Bangladesh.


Presented By:

Engr. Md. Rejaul Hasan

Head of Engineering,

Lead Structural Engineer,



The seminar was well-attended and well-received by the participants. The speakers were highly knowledgeable and experienced, and they provided valuable insights into the detailing of SMFs. The seminar was a valuable learning experience for the participants, and it will help them to design and construct safer and more resilient buildings.


Here are some of the benefits of proper detailing of RCC SMFs:


Improved seismic performance

Properly detailed SMFs can withstand the forces of an earthquake, providing better protection for the occupants of the building.



Increased ductility

Ductile frames are able to absorb energy during an earthquake, preventing the building from collapsing.



Reduced damage

Proper detailing can help to reduce the amount of damage to a building during an earthquake.



Longer lifespan

Well-detailed SMFs can last for many years, even after being subjected to multiple earthquakes.

If you are involved in the design or construction of buildings in seismically active regions, it is important to ensure that the SMFs are properly detailed. This will help to ensure the safety of the occupants and the longevity of the building.
