Web Seminar: Tsunami Design per ASCE 7-16
October 11, 2018
The 2016 edition of ASCE 7, Minimum Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures, contains a brand new Chapter 6 on Tsunami Loads and Effects. This new chapter applies to the tsunami design of all Risk Category III and IV buildings, and potentially many taller Risk Category II buildings, in coastal communities in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California and Hawaii. These provisions can also be applied to other communities exposed to tsunami hazard, including Guam, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, and communities outside the US.
Because tsunami design will be new to virtually all architects, structural, geotechnical and civil engineers, and building officials, this webinar is designed to give an overview of the new provisions and demonstrate their application to prototypical coastal buildings.
