This DE14 presentation will review the seismic
requirements for design of a low-profile, unattached solar PV system on a
low-slope roof. The session will also introduce SEAOC PV-1: Structural
Seismic Requirements and Commentary for Rooftop Solar PV Arrays, including
provisions adopted by ASCE 7. The DE15 presentation will show how gravity loads should
be addressed in the design of structures that support roof-mounted photovoltaic
(PV) panels. Gravity loads associated with PV panels are more complicated
than they might seem, particularly with respect to existing buildings.
Best practices and recommendations for dealing with gravity loads will be
discussed, as will the associated upgrade triggers in the International
Existing Building Code. The
DE16 presentation shows the application
of ASCE 7-16 and 2018 IBC to an open-grid carport structure supporting a
photovoltaic (PV) panel system. This presentation will briefly cover Wind
Design Forces (MWFRS), Combinations of Loads (MWFRS), Design Requirements for
MWFRS, Wind Design Forces (C&C), Combinations of Loads (C&C) plus
- Course will award 1.5 hours of continuing education
- This course is Diamond Review approved in 49 states. New York does not accept hours from recordings.
