1 Presentation 0 Sections

This presentation explains two significant new provisions in ASCE 7-16, an alternative diaphragm design force level that is different from the design force level of ASCE 7-10, which is retained in ASCE 7-16 and a precast diaphragm design procedure to go together with the alternative design force level.
