This practical guide shows, step by step, how to interpret and apply the provisions of the 2024 IBC and ASCE 7-22. The book contains information on how to accurately determine structural loads including gravity and environmental loads. Many new figures, flow charts, design aids, and example problems have been included in this edition based on the major changes in the provisions.
Structural Load Determination: 2024 IBC and ASCE/SEI 7-22 opens with an introduction to structural loads and a discussion of the relationship between the IBC and ASCE 7 standards. From there, the book provides in-depth coverage on how to determine the following loads: dead, live (including live load reduction), rain, snow, ice, wind (including new provisions for tornados), earthquake, flood and tsunami. A chapter is devoted to typical load paths for both gravity and lateral loads. Throughout, emphasis is placed on the proper application of load provisions within the scope of everyday practice.
