Seminar Description

ASCE 41-17, cited by the 2015 IEBC, combines and updates the national standards for seismic evaluation (formerly ASCE 31-03) and seismic retrofit (ASCE 41-06). This webinar will describe how ASCE 41-17 works with the building code and how the new combined standard solves some of the problems of its predecessors. It will explain four key technical concepts that distinguish the standard from building code provisions for new buildings.
