2015 IBC SEAOC Structural/Seismic Design Manual Vol 2
2015 IBC SEAOC Structural/Seismic Design Manual Volume 2: Examples for Light-Frame, Tilt-up and Masonry Buildings provides a step-by-step approach to applying the structural provisions of the 2015 International Building Code and referenced standards. It contains code application examples of light-frame, tilt-up and masonry construction. Diaphragm flexibility, center of mass, collectors and chords, deflection and anchorage are discussed through examples. In and out-of-plane seismic loads are analyzed. Contains sample structures of wood, cold-formed steel, tilt-up concrete and masonry, including four-story wood light-frame hotel; cold-formed steel light-frame three-story apartment on concrete podium; tilt-up building with plan irregularities; tilt-up wall building with openings.
This manual is an excellent reference and study guide for the NCEES Structural Exam, as well as an invaluable resource for civil and structural engineers, architects, academics and students.
