I have been asked by SEAOC President Ron Hamburger to organize a series of statewide seminars on the Seismic Design Manual (Vol.2).

I expect to schedule the first in San Francisco in Sptember 2000.

Subject: Seismic Design Manual Vol 2

Finally! Seismic design manual Volume 2 has been released for sale. This is
the second volume of the three-volume SEAOC Seismic Design Manual. Along
with Volume I, this document has been developed by the Structural Engineers
Association of California to provide guidance on the interpretation and use
of seismic requirements of the 1997 UBC and 1999 Recommended Lateral Force
Requirements and Commentary (the 1999 SEAOC Blue Book). Provides more than
300 pages of light frame, masonry and tilt-up examples

You can order your copy at this address: 

It runs about $60

My take: Excellent document. Real good solved design examples

p.s. The final release of IBC 2000 is out.
