This practical guide shows, step by step, how to apply the provisions of the 2018 IBC and ASCE/SEI 7-16 to accurately determine structural loads. The book contains information engineers need to design buildings that will withstand the forces of gravity, occupancy, and environmental stress. You will get design examples, flowcharts, and load diagrams that illustrate complex load provisions.

Structural Load Determination Under 2018 IBC and ASCE/SEI 7-16 opens with an introduction to structural loads and a discussion of the relationship between the IBC and ASCE 7 standards. From there, the book explains the proper application of allowable stress design (ASD), load resistance factor design (LRFD), and seismic load combinations. Subsequent chapters cover occupancy, roof, rain, snow, ice, wind, seismic, and tsunami loads. Throughout, emphasis is placed on the proper application of load provisions within the scope of everyday practice.

  • Clearly explains the complex load provisions found in the 2018 IBC and in ASCE/SEI 7-16
  • Shows how to calculate dead loads, occupancy live loads, roof live loads, and environmental loads
  • Written by an experienced structural engineer in conjunction with the ICC
