This course provides a detailed description of the ASCE 7-16 procedures for seismic load analysis of buildings and other structures. For buildings, the course begins with a brief history of the development of ASCE 7 and then presents a sequence of topics that will lead you through the process of determining the seismic hazard, selecting the seismic-force resisting system, evaluating configuration irregularities., and determining the most appropriate method of analysis. Next, requirements for system modeling and structural analysis are presented by example. The last two weeks of the course concentrate on the seismic load analysis of non-building systems and nonstructural components. Significant changes from ASCE 7-10 to ASCE 7-16 are highlighted throughout the course.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
