From the Publisher;


Published by ASCE Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures,
ASCE/SEI 7-10
, is a complete revision of ASCE Standard 7-05.


Features:



  • A complete update and reorganization of the wind load provisions,
    expanding them from one chapter into six to make them more understandable
    and easier to follow

  • Event wind maps with corresponding reductions in load factors, so that
    the loads are not affected

  • Updates to the seismic loads of ASCE 7-05, offering new
    risk-targeted seismic maps, snow load, live load and atmospheric icing
    provisions of ASCE 7-05

  • Requirements for general structural design

  • Means for determining dead, live, soil, flood, wind, snow, rain,
    atmospheric ice, and earthquake loads, and their combinations that are
    suitable for inclusion in building codes and other documents.

  • Detailed commentary in every chapter containing explanatory and
    supplementary information to assist users of ASCE 7-10


Structural engineers, architects, and those engaged in preparing and
administering local building codes will find the structural load requirements
essential to their practice.
