Frequently Misunderstood Seismic Provisions of ASCE 7-10
This seminar explains the seismic design provisions of ASCE 7-10 in a number of areas that are known to be particularly confusing to the practicing engineer. The following topics are included:
- Rigid vs. Flexible Diaphragms
- Drift and Building Separation
- Seismic Analysis Procedure Selection
- Seismic Load Effects including Overstrength Factor
- Vertical Ground Motions for Seismic Design
- Structural Walls and Their Anchorage
- Seismic Design of Parapets
- Inherent Torsion, Accidental Torsion, Amplification of Accidental Torsion
Dr. S. K. Ghosh is known internationally for his work in earthquake engineering. He has influenced seismic design provisions in the United States for many years by serving on or chairing numerous committees and advisory panels. He specializes in the analysis and design, including wind and earthquake resistant design, of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Dr. Ghosh is active on many national technical committees and is a fellow of ASCE, SEI, ACI, and PCI. He is a member of ACI Committee 318, Standard Building Code, and the ASCE 7 Standard Committee (Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures). He is a former member of the Boards of Direction of the Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC), the American Concrete Institute (ACI), and the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI). In addition to authoring many publications in the area of structural design, he has investigated and reported on structural performance in recent earthquakes.
