Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE/SEI 7-22)

An integral part of building codes in the United States, Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures (ASCE/SEI 7-22) 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.
