SEAOC "The One Page Green Book of Existing Building Structural Evaluation etc.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The Structural Engineers Association - International Web Site 
(  has very important information of interest to design 
professionals who practice in the structural and earthquake engineering field.

It is suggested that you log on to this Web Site and click on to the 
"Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC)," then click on 
"Committees" and then click on "Existing Buildings" and download the SEAOC 
Existing Buildings Committee's "The One Page Green Book of Existing Buildings 
Structural Evaluation and Seismic Retrofit," which is a 42 page document.

This Green Book document is intended to deal with the structural engineering 
issues associated with existing buildings that are planned to remain in 
service and focuses on the structural evaluation, risk assessment and seismic 
retrofit of existing buildings.  It is an excellent resource document that 
you should have in your reference library if you are involved with the 
seismic issues related to existing buildings.  This Green Book tells you 
everything you need to know about the seismic structural evaluation and 
retrofit of buildings but were afraid to ask.  Much credit for this excellent 
resource document is due to the efforts of the SEAOC Existing Buildings 
Committee and its immediate past chair Richard Hess.
