Press Book Offers Clear Explanation Of Seismic Design Provisions
April 16, 2020

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) recently announced that Seismic Loads: Guide to the Seismic Load Provisions of ASCE 7-16 provides clear, authoritative explanations of the seismic design provisions contained in Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures, ASCE/SEI 7-16. When used in conjunction with the standard commentary, provided as a separate volume, structural engineers can apply the latest thinking in seismic design of new building structures.

Authors Charney, Heausler, and Marshall help navigate structural engineers through the process of assessing conditions, including identifying occupancy, importance and seismic design categories, determining the seismic requirements and selecting a structural system. Topics include building irregularities, structural analysis, lateral system forces, load factors, drift and P-delta effects.

This is an essential companion to the standard ASCE/SEI 7-16 for all engineers, architects, and construction professionals who work on buildings in seismically active locations.
