2009 NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions: Design Examples  

Archive (Canceled)

This volume of design examples is intended for those experienced structural designers who are relatively new to the field of earthquake-resistant design and to the 2009 NEHRP (National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program) Recommended Seismic Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures. By extension, it also applies to use of the current model codes and standards because the Provisions is the key resource for updating seismic design requirements in most of those documents including ASCE 7 Standard, Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures; and the International Building Code (IBC).

Furthermore, the 2009 NEHRP Provisions (FEMA P-750) adopted ASCE7-05 by reference and the 2012 International Building Code adopted ASCE7-10 by reference; therefore, seismic design requirements are essentially equivalent across the Provisions, ASCE7 and the national model code.
