Seminar Description

ASCE 7-22 is adopted by the 2024 IBC, which will be published later this year. The changes from ASCE 7-16 to ASCE 7-22 are so numerous and so substantive that learning about them needs to start now. The chapter on flood loads is the only chapter that has escaped any change. There are huge changes in snow load, ice load, and tsunami load provisions. There is a whole new chapter (32) on tornado loads. Risk Category III or IV structures located in the tornado-prone region shown in a figure are required to be designed and constructed to resist the greater of the tornado loads determined in accordance with Chapter 32 or the wind loads determined in accordance with Chapters 26 through 31. The changes in Chapters 11-23 on earthquake loads and Chapters 26-31 on wind loads are many and many of the seismic changes mark significant departures from past practice. ASCE 7-22 load combinations and importance factors are also quite different because of changes in the loads chapters. This multi-part seminar will introduce the major changes to attendees and will explain the changes and discuss their impact.

Speaker Bio

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.

Dr. Robertson is Professor of Structural Engineering at the University of Hawaii. Since 2001, a considerable amount of his research has focused on the response of buildings and other structures to tsunami loads. He has participated in numerous post-tsunami reconnaissance surveys, and serves as a member of the ASCE 7 Tsunami Loads and Effects Subcommittee. ASCE has commissioned Dr. Robertson to write a Guide to the Tsunami Design Provisions of ASCE 7-16, the first manual that explains the background, development, and application of the tsunami provisions of Chapter 6 of the ASCE 7-16 Standard, including reference to laboratory research and field surveys that contributed to development of the tsunami design provisions. Dr. Robertson is the Arthur N. L. Chiu Distinguished Professor of Structural Engineering at the University of Hawaii.
