Seminar Description

Part 1 of this two-part webinar is about major, far-reaching changes in the wind provisions of U.S. codes and standards over the last three decades or so. This will include the very substantive changes in wind design provisions from ASCE 7-10 to ASCE 7-16, which are reflected in the 2018 IBC. This is a chance to review where we have been and gives us a look to the future with the insight of someone who has long been intimately involved in the structural code development process. The major topics covered are:

  1. An Overview of the History and Development of Wind Provisions
  2. ASCE 7-10 to ASCE 7-16: Substantive Changes to Wind Design Provisions
Part 2 of the seminar will be on seismic design.
