BSSC NEHRP Webinar Series

The 2020 NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures (FEMA P-2082) marks the tenth edition of this technical resource document since its first publication in 1985. As with prior editions, this FEMA document is a national seismic code resource for design professionals and the U.S. standards and code-development organizations. Most of the recommended code changes in Part 1 of the NEHRP Provisions are adopted by ASCE/SEI 7-22, Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures, which is to be adopted by reference by the 2024 International Building Code.

The 2020 NEHRP Recommended Provisions: Design Examples are developed by BSSC for FEMA to illustrate and explain some of the new changes of the 2020 NEHRP Provisions, ASCE/SEI 7-22, and the material design standards referenced therein in design applications. The Design Examples are developed primarily for design practitioners; however, college students learning about earthquake engineering and engineers studying for their licensing exam or designing in regions of moderate and high seismicity will find this document’s explanation of earthquake engineering, the 2020 Provisions, and ASCE/SEI 7-22 seismic provisions helpful.

The webinar series is organized by the eight chapters in the 2020 NEHRP Recommended Provisions: Design Examples, and serves as part of the FEMA NEHRP/BSSC outreach and education effort.

Registration for the webinar series is free (space is limited). CEUs (for AIA and ICC) and certificates of attendance for PDHs and will be provided to those who attend the live webinars.
