This presentation will focus on the seismic design of reinforced concrete structures using the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) 2015 NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions and its primary reference standards:  American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)/Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) standard ASCE/SEI 7-10 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures and the American Concrete Institute (ACI) standard 318-14: Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary. It will provide a summary of the design standards, the basic ductile design principals for concrete and the specific seismic design criteria and provisions based on Seismic Design Category. Excerpts of the FEMA P-1051, 2015 NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions: Design Examples document will be presented to reinforce the general concepts.
