Nonstructural Components: Fundamentals and Design Examples – Part 2

Apr 28, 2022   |   1:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET
Virtual Meeting

The 2020 NEHRP Provisions developed major updates to nonstructural seismic design provisions which were then adapted for Chapter 13 of ASCE/SEI 7-22. The primary focus of the updates is the equation used to determine design forces for nonstructural components, but there are updates to other provisions as well. The training will be given in two parts. Part 1 will discuss nonstructural design fundamentals and cover two design examples. The portion on fundamentals will summarize:

  • The parameters influencing nonstructural response
  • The new seismic design force equation
  • How equipment support structures and platforms and distribution system supports are addressed
  • Other nonstructural provision code changes

The design examples in Part 1 include architectural precast cladding and egress stairs. Part 2 will cover three design examples: HVAC fan unit support, piping systems, and elevated vessels.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the parameters influencing nonstructural response
  • Understand key changes for nonstructural component design coming in ASCE/SEI 7-22, including
    • The new seismic design force equation
    • How equipment support structures and platforms are handled
    • How distribution system supports are handled
  • Understand how to use the 2020 NEHRP Provisions Design Examples as a resource for nonstructural component design
