Topic: Changes in ASCE 7-22
The presentation is an overview of many of the major changes made in the 2022 edition of ASCE 7-22. While changes in each chapter are discussed, most of the presentation will concentrate on the major changes in the seismic and wind chapters, including the new Chapter 32 – Tornado Loads. Some of the changes to be discussed are:
Mandatory use of electronic databases containing loading information.
New alternative method for determining loads from water in soil.
New ground snow loads.
22 period multi-point response spectrum for seismic design.
New seismic force equation for nonstructural components.
Addition of tornado loads for Risk Category III and IV structures.
