The 2012 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual provides a step-by-step approach to applying the structural provisions of the 2012 International Building Code and referenced standards. Volume 5 contains examples of seismically isolated buildings and buildings with supplemental damping.
Volume 5 includes sample structures incorporating supplemental damping and seismic isolation systems including:
- Seismically Isolated Building with Lead-rubber Bearings
- Seismically Isolated Building with Friction Pendulum Bearings
- Special Moment Resisting Frame with Dampers
An excellent reference and study guide for the NCEES Structural Exam, this manual is an invaluable resource for civil and structural engineers, architects, academics and students.
If you're in need of a book that explains seismic design requirements or study material for the NCEES Structural Exam, you need this reference in your library!
