This new guide fully explains how and why building irregularities impact structural design and provides detailed examples of how to appropriately analyze and design lateral force-resisting elements for various types of irregular buildings located in Seismic Design Category (SDC) B and D. The book references the 2012 IBC and ASCE/SEI 7-10, and references material standards from the 2012 IBC by section number. It is also applicable to the later versions of these standards and the 2015 IBC. Four detailed design examples include an overview of applicable irregularities, a discussion of appropriate analysis and design requirements, determination of key lateral force-resisting system demands, and design of select example elements contained in the building’s load path.
