Webinar: Tsunami Design per ASCE 7-16 with a Preview of ASCE 7-22 Changes
October 13, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
The 2016 edition of ASCE 7, Minimum Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures, contains a new Chapter 6 on Tsunami Loads and Effects. This 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.
