Structural/Seismic Design Manual Webinar Series

With the New Year, January 1, 2014, California will be enforcing new building codes, and SEAOC has been busy preparing tools to help members transition to these new codes! Updating of the Structural/Seismic Design Manuals (SSDMs) to the 2012 IBC has just been completed, including expanded example problem coverage. SEAOC has presented a series of five webinars addressing each of the five SSDM volumes.

The webinars highlight what you need to know about structural/ seismic design using the 2012 IBC, including code changes of interest, how design incorporating code changes is illustrated in the SSDMs, and an overview of new content included in the 2012 SSDM series. This series of webinars is intended to dovetail with SEAOC Member Organizations seminars in early 2014, which will provide detailed technical presentations of the SSDM problems.

The following recordings are now available for purchase in the SEAOC Bookstore:

Code Application Examples - SSDM Volume 1
