ASCE SEI 7-16-Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures provides the most recent and correct information on coordinated loading standards and general structural design.  It was created by the committee on minimum design loads for buildings and other structures of the codes and standards activities division of the structural engineering institute of the ASCE.  The ASCE 7-16 contains all the information you need from determining different loads times to the correct assessment of load combinations.  It even goes over the loads times for weather conditions including flood, tsunami, snow, rain, atmospheric ice, earthquakes, wind and fire. 

 

This is the most up-to-date publication of the ASCE 7.  It includes updated information on speed maps, seismic maps, snow load maps, rain duration provisions and a new chapter on tsunami design.  The ASCE SEI 7 is adopted in several different codes including the International Building Code, the International Residential Code, NFPA 5000 Building Construction and Safety Code, and the International Existing Building Code.
