    STRUCTURAL SEISMIC DESIGN MANUALS SERIES

    SEAOC Fall Webinar Series: Examples from SEAOC Structural/Seismic Design Manual based on IBC 2021

    The SEAOC Structural/Seismic Design Manuals have been updated to the 2021 IBC and will soon be available for purchase. In conjunction with the release of the updated manuals, the SEAOC Continuing Education Committee will be presenting two series of webinars on selected examples from the manuals. The first series will begin on November 16, conclude on December 15, and include presentation of the following examples:

    12 noon Wednesday, November 16: Design of Non-Structural Components with Building Accelerations, presented by Jen Gross, Degenkolb Engineers; and Shallow Foundation Design with Liquefiable Soils, presented by Katy Briggs, BASE Design

    12 noon Wednesday, November 30: Design of CFS Framed Building on Concrete Podium, presented by Jeff Ellis, Simpson Strong-TiE

    12 noon Wednesday, December 7: Wood Diaphragm Design, presented by John Lawson, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo

    12 noon Thursday, December 15: Braced Frame Base Plate Design, presented by Rachel Cohen & Casey Ching, Forell/Elsesser Engineers

    Each presentation will provide examples of IBC 2021 problems that include a discussion of the provisions in the standard, speaking to big-picture concepts and the nuts, bolts and nails of implementation. This seminar is critical to practicing structural engineers, trained designers, building department engineers, plan review agencies, professors and students as you can all learn from these examples of code-compliant designs engineered to achieve good performance under seismic design.

    The U.S. Resiliency Council (USRC) conducted a study on the comparative seismic performance of multifamily structures comprised of four construction types: traditional wood framing, cross laminated timber (CLT), steel framing and insulated concrete forms (ICF). The objective of the study was to demonstrate that different structural systems, all permitted within the International Building Code, may nonetheless deliver different performance in earthquakes. While a code compliant building regardless of structural system is expected to provide life safety, the amount of physical damage, repair costs and building functional recovery time can depend significantly on the strength and stiffness of the selected structural system.

    In the study, estimates were made on the repair costs and recovery times associated with damage caused by a range of earthquake intensities in various locations. These estimates were based upon methodology developed over more than fifteen years by FEMA in the P58 - Seismic Performance Assessment of Buildings standard. Furthermore, it estimates repair costs and recovery time based on the fragility of individual structural and nonstructural components. Ultimately, net benefits and net construction cost deltas were compared across the four configurations and potential return on investment was estimated considering earthquakes that might occur over a 50-year building life. The study concludes with a USRC rating for safety, damage and recovery for each system and territory, as well as a brief assessment of the sustainability impacts for each structure type.
