Guide to the Design of Common Irregularities in Buildings: 2012/2015 IBC and ASCE/SEI 7-10 explains how and why building irregularities impact structural design and provides detailed examples of how to analyze and design lateral force-resisting elements for various types of irregular buildings located in Seismic Design Category B and D. Four detailed design examples include an overview of applicable irregularities, a discussion of appropriate analysis and design requirements, determination of key lateral force-resisting system demands, and design of select example elements contained in the building’s load path. References the 2012 and 2015 International Building Codes, as well as ASCE/SEI 7-10 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures.
