ASCE 7-10 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures

ASCE 7-10 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures, ASCE/SEI 7-10, is a complete revision of ASCE Standard 7-05. ASCE 7-10 offers a complete update and reorganization of the wind load provisions, expanding them from one chapter into six to make them more understandable and easier to follow. ASCE 7-10 provides new ultimate event wind maps with corresponding reductions in load factors, so that the loads are not affected. It updates the seismic loads of ASCE 7-05, offering new risk-targeted seismic maps. The snow load, live load, and atmospheric icing provisions of ASCE 7-05 are all updated as well.

ASCE Standard 7-10 provides requirements for general structural design and includes means for determining dead, live, soil, flood, wind, snow, rain, atmospheric ice, and earthquake loads, and their combinations that are suitable for inclusion in building codes and other documents. A detailed commentary containing explanatory and supplementary information to assist users of ASCE 7-10 is included with each chapter: ASCE 7-10 is an integral part of the building codes of the United States.

Structural engineers, architects, and those engaged in preparing and administering local building codes will find the structural load requirements essential to their practice.

Book News Annotation:

A valuable resource for developing building codes or other documents requiring elucidation of standards. This is identified as ASCE/SEI 7-10. It covers general structural design and provides methodology for ascertaining dead and live loading together with soil, flood, wind, snow, rain, atmospheric ice, and earthquake loads as well as combinations of these stressors. Both the International system of units (SI) and customary units are used throughout. Large revisions from the 2005 edition are clearly indicated. The text is available in CD-ROM at the same price; a combination of the two carries a list price of $248. An important resource for engineers and agencies specifying construction.
