  3. ICC 500-2014 Standard and Commentary: ICC/NSSA Standard for the Design and Construction of Storm Shelters cover image

    ICC 500-2014 Standard and Commentary: ICC/NSSA Standard for the Design and Construction of Storm Shelters (PDF Download)

    This easy-to-use format includes the full text of ICC 500-2014: ICC/NSSA Standard for the Design and Construction of Storm Shelters, including tables and figures, followed by the corresponding commentary for each section. The commentary explains the background and intent of the requirements and suggests the most effective method of application.

    Published by the International Code Council and the National Storm Shelter Association, the ANSI-approved 500-2014 standard is referenced in the 2015 IBC® and IRC® and provides minimum design and construction requirements for storm shelters that provide a safe refuge from storms producing high winds, hurricanes and tornadoes. The standard provides design requirements for the main wind-resisting structural system and components and cladding of these shelters, and provides basic occupant life safety and health requirements for these shelters including means of egress, lighting, sanitation, ventilation, fire safety and floor space.

    The 2015 IBC, under certain conditions, requires design of protected storm shelter areas in accordance with ICC 500-2014 for emergency operation centers, 911 call stations, police/fire/rescue/ambulance stations and some Group E occupancies.

    In addition to treating each section of the standard, this Commentary also addresses many items that have been revised or added since the 2008 edition, including:

    • Occupant load exception for dedicated facilities
    • Shelter installation requirements, including anchor locations and minimum required capacity for each anchor
    • Roof rainfall rates and primary and secondary drainage systems for hurricane areas
    • Post installed anchors and Special Inspection requirements to verify anchor installation
    • New definitions such as for various areas of furnishings and Impact Protective System
    • Anchor calculations for doors, windows and shutters
    • and many other revised and new sections

     This publication provides an excellent resource for anyone who wants a better understanding of ICC 500-2014 and how its provisions can increase public safety in high-wind regions.

  8.  Snow Loads: Guide to the Snow Load Provisions of ASCE 7-16

    Snow Loads: Guide to the Snow Load Provisions of ASCE 7-16

    Snow Loads: Guide to the Snow Load Provisions of ASCE 7-16 supplies detailed, authoritative explanations of the snow load provisions contained in Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures, Standard ASCE/SEI 7-16. With clear, concise language, Michael O'Rourke illustrates the key concepts for applying the provisions to the design of new and existing structures that could collect falling or drifting snow.

    Like its predecessors that accompanied earlier versions of ASCE 7, this new edition of Snow Loads discusses flat roof loads, sloped roof loads, partial loads, and all types of conventional drift loading. Driven by recent changes to the ASCE 7 snow load provisions, this guide describes:

    • Application of new ground snow load tables for seven states: Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oregon, and Washington
    • Latest research from Norway and Japan on the probability of snow sliding off roofs
    • Current thinking on how snow density changes over a winter season
    • Snow loads on air-supported structures
    • Updated provisions for nonbuilding structures, including open-frame equipment structures, pipes, and cable trays
    • Calculation of snow loads on process piping, which is especially useful to the petrochemical industry
    This guide includes 35 worked examples of real-life design problems, as well as answers to 20 frequently asked questions, including a new one on snow capture by solid walls.

    Snow Loads is an essential supplement to ASCE/SEI Standard 7 for all engineers, architects, construction professionals, and building officials who work on projects in regions subject to snow.

  9. Post-Tensioned Concrete: Principles and Practice, Fourth Edition

    Post-Tensioned Concrete: Principles and Practice, Fourth Edition

    The book is a combination of history, academic notes intended for use at the university level, design examples straight from actual jobs that we have designed and practical applications and detailing intended for the practicing engineer. Chapter 1 describes the history of post-tensioned concrete in the United States as only Ken Bondy can tell it. Chapters 2 through 8 are currently the notes that Dirk Bondy uses to teach Design of Prestressed Concrete Structures at UCLA and Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Chapters 9 through 13 are practical design examples in which we attempt to address many of the decisions faced by practicing engineers on typical projects including proper computer analysis and modeling techniques. Chapters 13 and 14 contain the true art of detailing and observing the construction of post-tensioned concrete. This knowledge was obtained over many years of working on our own projects and from listening and learning from the men who were the pioneers of post-tensioned concrete.
