September 7, 2012- Changes between ASCE 7-05 and ASCE 7-10 – Major Revisions to Both Wind and Seismic Provisions

September Meeting – Presented by: S.K. Ghosh

This seminar will present a detailed and comprehensive overview of the substantive changes from ASCE 7-05 to ASCE 7-10. Major revisions have taken place in both the wind design and the seismic design provisions. Wind design has changed more substantially than any time since the publication of ASCE 7-95. The reorganization of the wind provisions will be discussed and the changes to the wind maps and the corresponding changes to the load factors will be explained. In addition, the new simplified version of the general analytical procedure under Method 2, which is applicable to buildings of all heights, will be addressed.

Explanation of the new seismic maps will be presented and how they affect seismic design results will be discussed. There are many other significant changes to the ASCE 7 seismic provisions (Chapters 11, 12, 21 and 22), such as changes to Table 12.2-1 (the R-values table) and new provisions for wall anchorage, that will be discussed.

In addition to covering changes to the wind and seismic provisions, the seminar will also present a detailed and fairly comprehensive overview of the substantive changes to the other provisions found in ASCE 7. These include the introduction of performance-based design procedures, enhancement of the general structural integrity requirements, revisions to load combinations, new live loads, and changes to snow load provisions.
