Understand the changes to ASCE 7-10's nonbuilding structures seismic provisions


The latest edition of ASCE 7 includes several key revisions in sections covering seismic design of nonbuilding structures. ASCE's upcoming webinar, Changes to the Nonbuilding Structures Provisions in ASCE 7-10, will get you up to speed. Among the changes covered are those driven by poor performance in past seismic events, a need to conform to existing industry standards, and confusing language. You will learn how to avoid costly errors when designing large breach openings in reinforced concrete stacks; how to properly apply ASCE 7-10 Chapter 15 to reinforced concrete tanks; anchorage requirements for nonbuilding structures; updated requirements for steel storage racks; how to interpret Chapter 15 for piers and wharves, and more. This webinar will take place Friday, Dec. 7, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET. Get more details and register at the course page.
