Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures provides requirements for general structural design and the means for determining dead, live, soil, flood, wind, snow, rain, atmospheric ice, and earthquake loads, as well as their combinations, which are suitable for inclusion in building codes and other documents. This Standard, a complete revision of ASCE/SEI 7-02, includes revised and significantly reorganized provisions for seismic design of structures, as well as revisions in the provisions for determining live, flood, wind, snow, and atmospheric ice loads. Supplement No. 1, which is included with the Standard, ensures full and complete coordination between ASCE/SEI 7-05 and the 2006 International Building Code. The updates which comprise Supplement No. 1 are seamlessly integrated into this volume and are not available anywhere else. ASCE/SEI 7-05 is an integral part of building codes in the United States. The earthquake load provisions in ASCE 7-05 are substantially adopted by reference in the 2006 International Building Code and the 2006 NFPA 5000 Building Construction and Safety Code. Many other provisions, including calculations for wind and snow loads, are also adopted by reference by both IBC and NFPA model building codes. Structural engineers, architects, and those engaged in preparing and administering local building codes will find this Standard an essential reference in their practice. Supplement 2 can be downloaded in PDF format from the ASCE Library.

Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures, ASCE/SEI 7-10, is a complete revision of ASCE Standard 7-05. ASCE 7-10 offers a complete update and reorganization of the wind load provisions, expanding them from one chapter into six to make them more understandable and easier to follow. ASCE 7-10 provides new ultimate event wind maps with corresponding reductions in load factors, so that the loads are not affected. It updates the seismic loads of ASCE 7-05, offering new risk-targeted seismic maps. The snow load, live load, and atmospheric icing provisions of ASCE 7-05 are all updated as well. ASCE Standard 7-10 provides requirements for general structural design and includes means for determining dead, live, soil, flood, wind, snow, rain, atmospheric ice, and earthquake loads, and their combinations that are suitable for inclusion in building codes and other documents. A detailed commentary containing explanatory and supplementary information to assist users of ASCE 7-10 is included with each chapter: ASCE 7-10 is an integral part of the building codes of the United States. Structural engineers, architects, and those engaged in preparing and administering local building codes will find the structural load requirements essential to their practice.

ASCE 7 is the US standard for identifying minimum design loads for buildings and other structures. ASCE 7 covers many load types, of which wind is one. The purpose of this book is to provide structural and architectural engineers with the practical state-of-the-art knowledge and tools needed for designing and retrofitting buildings for wind loads. The book will also cover wind-induced loss estimation. This new edition include a guide to the thoroughly revised, 2010 version of the ASCE 7 Standard provisions for wind loads; incorporate major advances achieved in recent years in the design of tall buildings for wind; present material on retrofitting and loss estimation; and improve the presentation of the material to increase its usefulness to structural engineers. Key features: New focus on tall buildings helps make the analysis and design guidance easier and less complex. Covers the new simplified design methods of ASCE 7-10, guiding designers to clearly understand the spirit and letter of the provisions and use the design methods with confidence and ease. Includes new coverage of retrofitting for wind load resistance and loss estimation from hurricane winds. Thoroughly revised and updated to conform with current practice and research.

Significant Changes to Seismic Load Provisions of ASCE 7-10: An Illustrated Guide focuses on the revisions to the seismic load requirements set forth in the latest edition of the Standard for minimum design loads. Mirroring the organization of the seismic chapters in ASCE 7-10, this handy reference briefly summarizes each change to the seismic provisions that might affect actual practice or enforcement and immediately follows up with the precise wording of the change. The impact of each update is explained in clear, straightforward language accompanied by diagrams, examples, and color photographs and illustrations to enrich the reader s understanding. Significant Changes to the Seismic Load Provisions of ASCE 7-10: An Illustrated Guide translates the changes to the seismic provisions of ASCE Standard 7-10 into a form readily accessible by structural engineers, architects, contractors, building officials and inspectors, and allied professionals. S. K. Ghosh is president, Susan Dowty is vice president and Prabuddha Dasgupta is engineering manager of S. K. Ghosh Associates Inc., a seismic and building code consulting firm based in Palatine, IL and Aliso Viejo, CA. All three are active in development and interpretation of U.S. codes and standards.

The objective of the Guide to the Use of the Wind Load Provisions of ASCE 7-95 is to provide guidance in the use of the wind load provisions set forth in ASCE Standard 7-95. The Guide is a completely new document because the wind load provisions underwent major changes from the previous ASCE Standard 7-88 (or ASCE 7-93). The Guide contains six example problems, worked out in detail, which can provide direction to practicing professionals in assessing wind loads on a variety of buildings and other structures. Errata and Clarifications from the previous guide is also included.

Seismic Loads: Guide to the Seismic Load Provisions of ASCE 7-05 provides authoritative explanations of the seismic provisions offered in Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures, ASCE/SEI 7-05. With clear, concise language Seismic Loads illustrates the key concepts and guides structural engineers in applying the most current thinking in this rapidly changing discipline into the design of new structures. The book offers more than 20 detailed examples that analyze specific provisions of the standard and demonstrate the application of the provision in evaluating the seismic loading requirements for building structures. The examples guide structural engineers through the process of assessing conditions such as: identifying occupancy, importance, and seismic design categories, selecting a structural system, and analyzing the seismic requirements. Topics include building irregularities, structural analysis, system forces, and load factors, as well as drift and P-delta effects. Seismic Loads includes a frequently asked questions section and three appendixes with supplementary material. This book is an essential supplement to ASCE 7-05 for all engineers, architects, and construction professionals who work on projects in seismically active locations. About the author: Finley A. Charney, Ph.D., P.E., F.ASCE, is an associate professor of civil engineering at Virginia Polytechnic and State University and president of Advanced Structural Concepts in Blacksburg, Virginia.
