Re: Latest Building Seismic Codes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The 2003 IBC seismic provisions are based on ASCE 7-02, Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures.  ASCE 7-02, in turn, adopted the 2000 edition of the NEHRP provisions, with certain modifications. 
 
The 2003 IBC also directly references various sections of ASECE 7-02.  It allows the use of sections 9.1 through 9.6, 9.13, and 9.14 of ASCE 7-02 as an alternative to the use of the IBC seismic design provisions.
 
Which doesn't help you much if you are moving to California.
