Part 2 of this two-part webinar is about major, far-reaching changes in the seismic provisions of U.S. codes and standards over the last three decades or so. This will include the very substantive changes in seismic design provisions from ASCE 7-10 to ASCE 7-16, which are reflected in the 2018 IBC. It will also include the substantive changes that are seriously being considered for inclusion in ASCE 7 beyond its 2016 edition. These changes will alter seismic design practice materially and design professionals and others need to be aware of them. 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:
ICC Preferred Provider Course Number: 18628
- An Overview of the History and Development of Wind and Seismic Provisions
- ASCE 7-10 to ASCE 7-16: Substantive Changes to Wind as well as Seismic Design Provisions
- Seismic Design Practice beyond ASCE 7-16: Substantive Changes Being Considered
Dr. S. K. Ghosh is known internationally for his work in earthquake engineering. He has influenced seismic design provisions in the United States for many years by serving on or chairing numerous committees and advisory panels. He specializes in the analysis and design, including wind and earthquake resistant design, of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Dr. Ghosh is active on many national technical committees and is a fellow of ASCE, SEI, ACI, and PCI. He is a member of ACI Committee 318, Standard Building Code, and the ASCE 7 Standard Committee (Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures). He is a former member of the Boards of Direction of the Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC), the American Concrete Institute (ACI), and the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI). In addition to authoring many publications in the area of structural design, he has investigated and reported on structural performance in recent earthquakes.
