IBC Structural Provisions Webinar: Seismic Loads
April 16, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
This is a single topic within a webinar series which will provide an overview of the basic concepts of the International Building Code® (IRC®). These concepts provide a basis for the correct utilization of the code. A clear understanding of the identified requirements allows the code user to apply the IBC in specific situations and helps to build an understanding of the intent of the code when asked to make a judgment on code compliance. This course will also help the code user to correctly locate code requirements. It will also provide a basis for the correct use and application of the code as well as to begin to develop a procedure for applying them. This particular webinar reviews the details of developing seismic load effects using the International Building Code (IBC) and ASCE 7, Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures. The course topics include: structural integrity, site class, risk category, mapped spectral response accelerations, design spectral response accelerations, and seismic design category.
