Concise, visual explanations of code provisions that apply to seismic loads

This practical guide provides engineers with a visual overview of the code provisions pertinent to seismic loads. Seismic Loads: Time-Saving Methods Using the 2018 IBC and ASCE/SEI 7-16 contains simplified, step-by-step procedures that can be applied to determine seismic design criteria and requirements. Included are design aids, figures, flowcharts, and examples that clearly demonstrate each procedure. Companion online Excel spreadsheets can be used in practice to calculate loads accurately and efficiently.

Contains step-by-step procedures for:

  • Seismic ground motion values
  • Site-specific ground motion
  • Seismic design category
  • Seismic design for building structures
  • Equivalent lateral force procedure
  • Vertical and horizontal distribution of seismic forces
  • Story drift determination
  • P-delta effects
  • Diaphragms, chords, and collectors
  • Seismic forces on walls and their anchorage
  • Determining seismic forces using a simplified method
  • Seismic design for nonstructural components
  • Seismic forces on nonbuilding structures
