    NEHRP Recommend Provisions NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures

  • Volume I: Part 1 Provisions, Part 2 Commentary, FEMA P-1050-1/2015 Edition

    Volume II: Part 3 Resource Papers, FEMA P-1050-2/2015 Edition

    The 2015 NEHRP Provisions was used as the primary resource for the professional design standard ASCE/SEI 7-16 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures referenced in the International Building Code (IBC).

  • Training and Education Materials

    The BSSC develops educational, training materials and explanatory information to support the customers of the NEHRP Provisions.TheProvisions provide in-depth and complete commentary on the seismic design requirements in the ASCE 7. The NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions: Design Examples, FEMA P-1051,based on the Provisions,are intended for those who are experienced structural designers, but are relatively new to the field of seismic design. The design examples explain the principles behind the Provisions and include types of structures, materials, and specific seismic load resisting elements that illustrate to the reader how to apply the new requirements and to handle critical issues when conducting seismic design of the specific structural system. Practitioners and academics also will find useful training and educational slides in FEMA P-1052. Seminars and workshops are intended be held based on the FEMA P-1052materials.

    Simplified Seismic Design Procedures Development Program

    In response to the demands from building officials and building designers for quick and simplified seismic design procedures, the BSSC addressed developing easily accessible simplified seismic design procedures. The objective of simplified design is to help structural engineers to quickly produce designs of targeted structural systems with equivalent or above code required seismic performance.
