ASCE/SEI 7 Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures is a nationally adopted loading standard for the analysis and design of buildings and other structures. The 2016 edition of this consensus standard has been adopted into the 2018 International Building Code. This lecture will provide an overview of the significant changes and much needed updates incorporated in the 2016 edition. Some of the significant changes to be discussed are the new state snow load tables, the new tsunami provisions, new seismic ground motion maps, new site factors, important changes for nonstructural components and nonbuilding structures, new diaphragm procedures, new wind maps and the updated GCp values for components and cladding. The new ASCE 7 Hazard Tool will also be demonstrated. The presentation will also inform the audience about the ASCE/SEI standard development process and future of performance-based codes, as well as promote opportunities to get involved in the process.
