  • ASCE 7 16 Cover An integral part of building codes in the United States, Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE/SEI 7-16) describes the means for determining dead, live, soil, flood, tsunami, snow, rain, atmospheric ice, earthquake, and wind loads, and their combinations for general structural design.

    Structural engineers, architects, and building code officials will find the structural load requirements essential to their practice.

    Tsunami Loads and Effects

    The Tsunami Loads and Effects Subcommittee of the ASCE/SEI 7 Standards Committee has developed a new Chapter 6 - "Tsunami Loads and Effects" for Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures, ASCE/SEI 7-16 . The "Tsunami Loads and Effects" chapter will become the first national, consensus-based standard for tsunami resilience for use in the states of Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, and Hawaii.

    This collection of articles highlights the need for tsunami load design requirements for critical infrastructure, especially in areas of the country most at risk.
