2.6.14 | Understanding ASCE 7-10 Requirements for Seismic Design of Nonstructural Components

This webinar focuses on code requirements for the seismic protection of nonstructural components. The webinar will clarify what is and what is not regulated by code, and will provide a comprehensive understanding of the code requirements. Real world examples will be used to examine the requirements and common misapplications will be highlighted. Topics will include designing for force and drift requirements, complying with special seismic certification and the unique challenges associated with seismic protection of distributed systems such as piping, ductwork and conduit. Various approaches for achieving code compliance will also be discussed, including custom design by the SEOR, the specification of standards, and the use of performance specifications for design-build by others.
