Implementation of ASCE 7-22 Nonstructural Seismic Requirements for Today’s Complex Buildings
April 28, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
With the publication of ASCE 7-22 and its future adoption by IBC and state building codes, nonstructural seismic standard implementation is undergoing a dramatic change. Though the Chapter 13 requirements of the standard remain largely intact, the methodology to calculate nonstructural seismic force and displacement is much more dependent on information about the seismic behavior of the building in which they are housed. This leaves many unanswered questions for engineers who are newly familiarizing themselves with ASCE 7-22. This seminar seeks to answer many of those questions. It reviews the current nonstructural seismic standards in ASCE 7-16 and IBC 2021 and discusses proposed implementation methods for the changes in ASCE 7-22 and future IBC editions.
