۲۰۰۶ IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual, Volume 1: Code Application
Examples provides a step-by-step approach to applying the structural
provisions of the 2006 International Building Code. This new edition has
been completely revised to reflect the latest design methods contained
in the 2006 IBC. The Manual’s 57 examples illustrate the practical
application of a broad base of problems addressing both structural and
seismic issues. It is an invaluable resource for structural and civil
engineers, architects, code officials, and students.
From the Preface
This document is the initial volume in the three-volume 2006 IBC
Structural/Seismic Design Manual. It has been developed by the
Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC) with funding
provided by SEAOC. Its purpose is to provide guidance on the
interpretation and use of the seismic requirements in the 2006
International Building Code (IBC), published by the International Code
Council, Inc., and SEAOC’s 2005 Recommended Lateral Force Requirements
and Commentary (also called the Blue Book).
The 2006 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual was developed to fill a
void that exists between the commentary of the Blue Book, which explains
the basis for the code provisions, and everyday structural engineering
design practice. The 2006 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual
illustrates how the provisions of the code are used. Volume I: Code
Application Examples, provides step-by-step examples for using
individual code provisions, such as computing base shear or building
period. Volumes II and III: Building Design Examples furnish examples of
seismic design of common types of buildings. In Volumes II and III,
important aspects of whole buildings are designed to show,
calculation-by-calculation, how the various seismic requirements of the
code are implemented in a realistic design.
The examples in the 2006 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual do not
necessarily illustrate the only appropriate methods of design and
analysis. Proper engineering judgment should always be exercised when
applying these examples to real projects. The 2006 IBC
Structural/Seismic Design Manual is not meant to establish a minimum
standard of care but, instead, presents reasonable approaches to solving
problems typically encountered in structural/seismic design.
The example problem numbers used in the prior Seismic Design Manual –
۲۰۰۰ IBC Volume I code application problems have been retained herein to
provide easy reference to compare revised code requirements.
From the Introduction
Volume I of the 2006 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual: Code
Application Examples deals with interpretation and use of the
structural/seismic provisions of the 2006 International Building Code
(IBC). The 2006 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual is intended to help
the reader understand and correctly use the IBC structural/seismic
provisions and to provide clear, concise, and graphic guidance on the
application of specific provisions of the code. It primarily addresses
the major structural/seismic provisions of the IBC, with interpretation
of specific provisions and examples highlighting their proper
The 2006 IBC has had structural provisions removed from its text and has
reference several national standards documents for structural design
provisions. The primary references document is ASCE/SEI 7-05, which
contains the Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures.
ASCE/SEI 7-05 is referenced for load and deformation design demands on
structural elements, National Material design standards (such as ACI,
AISC, MSJC and NDS) are then referenced to take the structural load
demands from ASCE/SEI 7-05 and perform specific material designs.
Volume I presents 58 examples that illustrate the application of
specific structural/seismic provisions of the IBC. Each example is a
separate problem, or group of problems, and deals primarily with a
single code provision. Each example begins with a description of the
problem to be solved and a statement of given information. The problem
is solved through the normal sequence of steps, each of which is
illustrated in full. Appropriate code references for each step are
identified in the right-hand margin of the page.
The complete 2006 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual will have three
volumes, Volumes II and III will provide a series of structural/seismic
design examples for buildings illustrating the seismic design of key
parts of common building types such as a large three-story wood frame
building, a tilt-up warehouse, a braced steel frame building, and a
concrete shear wall building.
While the 2006 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual is based on the 2006
IBC, there are some provisions of SEAOC’s 2005 Recommended Lateral
Force Provisions and Commentary (Blue Book) that are applicable. When
differences between the IBC and Blue Book are significant they are
brought to the attention of the reader.
The 2006 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual is intended to be used by
practicing structural engineers and structural designers, building
departments, other plan review agencies, and structural engineering
