Nonstructural damage has historically accounted for 25-50% of the damage observed in recent earthquakes in the United States. This seminar will clarify what non-structural components are, what the code requires in regards to seismic restraint, and will discuss typical bracing schemes. A major portion of the discussion will revolve around what submittals should be provided to local building departments, as more jurisdictions are enforcing seismic restraint requirements. A couple of design examples from the SEAOC/ICC Seismic Design Manuals will also be shared to assist in the discussion.
