The American Society of Civil Engineers’ Structural Engineering Institute (ASCE/SEI) today announced it will conduct a public comment period on the second supplement to its Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures standard (ASCE 7-05). The public comment period is now open and will run until December 4, 2007.
The purpose of the standard is to provide minimum load requirements for the design of buildings and other structures that are subject to building code requirements. This supplement addresses changes to seismic design requirements for building and non-building structures.
To participate in the public comment period, contact Phillip Mariscal, ASCE standards administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703.295.6338. For more information on the standard or ASCE’s standards program, please contact Karen Albers at email@example.com or 703.295.6404.
