ICC and SEAOC Release New Seismic Design Manuals
The new seismic design manuals have been updated to reference the 2018 IBC and are available in both PDF and a new eBook format.
The International Code Council and the Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC) have partnered to release a joint publication of the 2018 IBC SEAOC Structural/Seismic Design Manuals. The updated series provides a guided approach to applying the structural provisions of the 2018 International Building Code (IBC) and referenced standards.
This updated, four-volume series includes:
- Volume 1: Code Application Examples – Volume 1 contains code application examples based on the IBC and ASCE 7-16, including determination of seismic irregularities, combinations of structural systems, determination of drift, support of discontinuous systems and analysis of seismic forces applied to equipment, nonstructural elements and nonbuilding structures.
- Volume 2: Examples for Light-Frame, Tilt-up and Masonry Buildings – Volume 2 contains code application examples of light-frame, tilt-up and masonry construction. Diaphragm flexibility, center of mass, collectors and chords, deflection and anchorage are discussed through examples. In- and out-of-plane seismic loads are analyzed.
- Volume 3: Examples for Concrete Buildings – Volume 3 contains code application examples of concrete construction. Moment frames, braced frames and shear wall construction are analyzed.
- Volume 4: Examples for Steel-Framed Buildings – Volume 4 details sample structures with steel moment frames or braced frames and steel connections.
The 2018 IBC SEAOC Structural/Seismic Design Manuals are available for purchase through the Code Council store individually or as a collection in both print and a new eBook format to use on any device. Code Council eBooks provide instant access to references and codes both online and offline with a full suite of study tools.
