RR 22.01.00-3.1 Static Seismic Loads per IBC 2018 / ASCE 7-16
Automatically generated equivalent lateral seismic loads per IBC 2018 / ASCE 7-16 are now available in STAAD.Pro.
The load parameters are assigned using the User Interface or can be manually entered in the STAAD editor.
Automatic load combinations using the tables from IBC 2018 can be added using the Auto Load Combination dialog, as well.
Changes from IBC 2015/ASCE 7-10 Code
The other significant change in the seismic provisions are in long-period site coefficient, Fa, and short-period site coefficient, Fv. Table 11.4-1 and 11.4-2 of the code provides the value of Fa and Fv respectively. These values are used for the IBC 2018 implementation in STAAD.Pro.
