This webinar will advance the audience’s knowledge of the fundamentals of nonstructural response, as well as changes in the code pertaining to design of nonstructural components.
In 2018, the Applied Technology Council completed the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)-funded ATC-120 project series, which first reviewed seismic analysis, design, and installations of nonstructural components (resulting in NIST GCR 17-917-44) and then developed recommendations for improved seismic performance of these components (resulting in NIST GCR 18-917-43). Next, the Federal Emergency Management Agency supported the Building Seismic Safety Council to incorporate selected recommendations from the NIST GCR 18-917-43 report as updates into the 2020 NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures. This work also included development of design examples to be used as a resource for nonstructural component design. The 2020 NEHRP Provisions were then used as the basis for the significant revisions to nonstructural design in ASCE/SEI 7-22, Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures.
