New Publication Outlines Changes to Load Provisions of ASCE 7-16
January 11, 2018

The American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) new publication, Significant Changes to the Minimum Design Load Provisions of ASCE 7-16, describes more than 100 changes, accompanied by an explanation of the rationale behind each change and a detailed analysis of its implications, in a user-friendly, appealing format. The four subject-matter expert authors summarize and explain the major differences between ASCE 7-10 and 7-16, highlighting the most noteworthy developments for readers.

Generously illustrated by photographs, diagrams, and other visual aids, the book covers general requirements and load combinations; dead and live loads; snow, rain, and ice loads; earthquake loads; wind loads; and new tsunami guidelines. This handy volume, copublished by ASCE Press and International Code Council, translates changes to the ASCE 7-16 load provisions into a form quickly accessible to structural engineers, architects, contractors, building officials and inspectors, and allied professionals.
