Provisions Part 1
Section ASCE 7-05 Provision Section ASCE 7-10 Significant Revisions Comments

Chapter 11, SEISMIC DESIGN CRITERIA Per Harris: Table 12.2-1 of ASCE 7-10 contains the requirements of AAC as published in the 2009 NEHRP Part 1. The corresponding modifications for Chapter 14.4 (.3) are not included in ASCE 7-10. 11.1.2 Scope This section lists four types 11.1.2 Scope A fifth exemption has been The 2009 NEHRP modifications to of structure that are exempt added: piers and wharves that ASCE 7-05 were not incorporated into from the seismic are not accessible to the general ASCE 7-10. requirements. public. 11.1.3 This section indicates which 11.1.3 Applicability Text was added indicating that Applicability chapter covers what type of buildings whose purpose is system. enclosing equipment and machinery may be designed as a non-building structure (Chapter 15) Some added definitions were reviewed 11.2 Definitions This section has all the 11.2 Definitions Minor revisions with potential in conjunction with PUC-addressed definitions for the seismic substantive impacts have been revisions. provisions of this Standard. made to the definitions for attachments, component, Per Kircher (see also 11.3, 11.4, Ch. 21, designated seismic systems, Ch. 22): The definition of the MCER in grade plane, story above Section 11.2, terms defining mapped grade, supports. values of MCER spectral acceleration in Section 11.3, design requirements and The following definitions have equations defining seismic MCER been deleted: basement, ground motion values in Section 11.4 component support, hazardous and related ground motion maps of contents, importance factor.

Section ASCE 7-05 Provision Section ASCE 7-10 Significant Revisions Comments simplified by the SSC of ASCE 7 when the new ground motions of the 2009 Provisions were adopted for use in ASCE 7 (and by reference the 2012 IBC). Recommendation - The PUC should choose to either (1) adopt the simplifying/editorial changes of ASCE 710 in their entirety and begin the cycle with material identical to that of ASCE 7-10 (and the 2012 IBC), or (2) reject all simplifying/editorial changes of ASCE 710 and begin the next cycle with material identical to that of the 2009 NEHRP Provisions. It would be counterproductive to piecemeal accept/reject each ASCE 7-10 change. The second option would maintain the "clarity" of the 2009 Provisions, but affect a divergence with ASCE 7 that would make changes to the 2014 Provisions problematic when brought forward for consideration by the SSC of ASCE 7. Some added notation reviewed in conjunction with PUC-addressed revisions. See Kircher comments on Sec. 11.2 above. Revisions are similar in scope to the 2009 NEHRP modifications to ASCE 705, and the comparison is addressed by the PUC. See Kircher comments on Sec. 11.2 above.

Section has been replaced by a reference to Section 1.4 General Structural Integrity and exempts nonstructural components in SDC A from seismic design requirements except for the tank freeboard requirements (Sec. 15.7.6.1.2) in Risk Category IV buildings. The provisions of Section 1.4 have the same general lateral force, load path and connection requirements of ASCE 7-05, except that the loading requirements for anchorage of structural walls (ASCE 7-05 Sec 11.7.5 renumbered to Sec 11.7.1) has been changed and it now applies to all types of walls, not just concrete and masonry. Revisions include many editorial Revisions are similar in scope to the changes and revised 2009 NEHRP modifications to ASCE 7requirements for SDC D to F. 05, but the matter has been addressed by the PUC. Crouse: The difference between the two documents is editorial for the most part. In Section 11.8.2, editorial differences occur in sentence above the Exception and within the Exception.

Section ASCE 7-05 Provision Section ASCE 7-10 Significant Revisions Comments the NEHRP provisions is replaced with MCEG on pp. 67 & 68 of ASCE 7-10. Also, the phrase Figs. 22-6 through 2210 in the definition of PGA under Eq. 11.8-1 in ASCE 7-10 should read Figs 22-7 through 22-11. Editorial differences are noted in Section 11.8.3, Paragraphs 3 and 4. In Table 11.8-1 the header beginning with the word, Mapped, is editorially different in the two documents.

Chapter 12, SEISMIC DESIGN REQUIREMENTS FOR BUILDING STRUCTURES 12.2.1 Selection and Limitations Provides the basic seismic 12.2.1 Selection and force-resisting systems and Limitations design criteria in Table 12.21. A summary of the revisions is as follows: Bearing Wall Systems Added section references for detailing requirements associated with concrete shear wall systems. New AAC systems will be addressed by the PUC. Light-frame systems of wood and cold-formed steel have been separated but no changes to design values. Building Frame Systems Revisions to steel eccentrically braced frames will be addressed by the PUC. Added section references for detailing requirements associated with concrete shear wall systems. Some of the system revisions are similar in scope to the 2009 NEHRP modifications to ASCE 7-05, but the comparison has been addressed by the PUC as have the revised detailing references for steel and concrete systems which are addressed here and in conjunction with the PUC-review of the relevant sections of Chapter 14. Per Malley: I have confirmed that the changes to Table 12.2-1 of ASCE 7-10 related to steel EBF and BRBF are identical to those in FEMA 750. Also, in Section 14.1.1 of FEMA 750, the changes to AISC 341-10 were essentially identical, with an editorial style change and clarification in AISC 341-10 added to FEMA 750 language.

Section 12.2.5.6 Steel Ordinary Moment Frames 12.2.5.7 Steel Intermediate Moment Frames ASCE 7-10 Significant Revisions The sections have been significantly reorganized, but the only substantive change involves an exception to the height limits for single-story ordinary and intermediate moment frame structures enclosing equipment or machinery subject to certain dead load restrictions. Two limitations have been added for idealizing structures of lightframe construction as flexible: limitations on topping slabs and drift limitations on each line of vertical elements. Text added to indicate that Ax is 1.0 when computing story drifts for determination of irregularity Type 1a and 1b (torsional). Type 4 irregularity (in-plane discontinuity) has been revised to occur where an in-plane offset results in overturning demands on a beam, column, truss, or slab. The increased forces are specified as the diaphragm forces of Section 12.10.1.1 rather than the base shear forces of Section 12.8.1 Comments

ASCE 7 permits certain diaphragms to be idealized as flexible.

Per Pekelnicky: Proposal 2-2R2, which revised the table for permissible analysis procedures, was adopted into ASCE 7-10 with one significant technical change and one editorial change. The editorial change was to break out the row of Structural Characteristics in D, E, F titled Regular structures not exceeding 160 feet in height and all structures of light frame construction into two separate rows one for regular structures not exceeding 160 feet and one for light frame. The significant technical change in the ASCE 7-10 table was the addition of a row in D, E, and F titled Risk Category I or II buildings not exceeding 2 stories above the base and permitting those structures to be designed using the Equivalent Lateral Force Procedure.

Revisions include moving the exceptions to a new section (13.6.8.3) and the addition of design criteria for conditions where other applicable material standard or recognized design bases are not used. In addition to the new locations, the revisions to the exceptions include an item for trapeze assemblies. Text has been added indicating that materials meeting the toughness requirements of ASTM B31 shall be considered highdeformability materials. The two sections in ASCE 7-05 Revisions are similar in scope to the have been reorganized in ASCE 7- 2009 NEHRP modifications to ASCE 710. 05, but the matter has been reviewed by the PUC. Per Soules: The difference between the two documents, for the most part, is editorial. Section 13.6.8.2 was modified to exclude the new exceptions listed in 13.6.8.3, thus making NFPA 13 truly a standalone reference document. The intent of the 2009 NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions was not changed.

Section 14.1.3 ColdFormed Steel 14.1.3.1 14.1.3.2 14.1.3.3 ASCE 7-10 Significant Revisions Section has been reorganized, references updated, modifications to reference standards added. Comments A review of the ASCE 7-10 revisions for cold-formed steel as compared to ASCE 7-05 and the 2009 NEHRP modifications has been addressed by the PUC. Per Manley: ASCE 7-10 has incorporated all requirements on ColdFormed-Steel Special Bolted MomentFrame modifications as passed by the BSSC in the 2009 NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions except as follows: In ASCE 7, Section 14.1.3.3.3 (FEMA P750, Section 14.1.4.1.3), the following sentence has been added: The beams shall have a minimum design thickness of 0.105 in.(2.67 mm). This is a clarification. In ASCE 7, Section 14.1.3.3.3 (FEMA P750, Section 14.1.4.1.3), the following subsection has been added: D1.2.1.1 Single-Channel Beam Limitations. When singlechannel beams are used, torsional effects shall be accounted for in the design. This is a clarification. In FEMA P 750, Section 14.1.4.1.5 (ASCE 7, Section 14.1.3.3.5), the following two sentences have been deleted: The design story drift shall not exceed 0.03h, unless approved by authority having jurisdiction. In no case shall the design story drift exceed 0.05h. This change has the net effect of requiring the CFS-SBMF system to

Section ASCE 7-05 Provision Section ASCE 7-10 Significant Revisions Comments meet the ASCE 7 allowable storey drift limits contained in ASCE 7, Table 12.12-1. This change holds the system to a more rigorous standard. A review of the ASCE 7-10 revisions for cold-formed steel as compared to ASCE 7-05 and the 2009 NEHRP modifications was addressed by the PUC. See Manley comment on Sec. 14.1.4 above.

14.1.4.1 LightFramed ColdFormed Construction 14.1.5 Prescriptive Framing

Section requires lightframed cold-formed steel construction to be designed in accordance with AISI NAS, AISI GP, AISI WSD, AISI Lateral or ASCE 8. One and two family dwellings are permitted to be designed and constructed in accordance to the provisions in the AISIPM subject to the limitations therein. Section includes ASCE 7 modifications to ACI 31805.

14.1.4 ColdFormed Steel LightFrame Construction 14.1.4.2 Seismic Requirements. 14.1.4.3 Prescriptive .

Two sections have been reorganized and combined. Previous reference standards for engineered systems have been replaced with AISI S100, Section D4 and where seismic design is required to AISI S213. Reference standard for prescriptive design has been revised to AISI S230.

Section ASCE 7-05 Provision Section ASCE 7-10 Significant Revisions Comments instead of wall piers for SDC C to F. Wall piers for SDC D, E, and F are referred to Section 14.2.2.4 (this is an incorrect pointer and probably is intended to be 14.2.2.5). In Section 14.2.2.7 Foundations, the provision is limited to SDC D, E, and F. This change is consistent with the application of the Foundation section in Chapter 21 of ACI 318, but it is a change from the proposal. Regarding 14.2.3, Proposal 4-3, pile details: This proposal was adopted into ASCE 7-10 without changes. 14.3 Composite Steel and Concrete Structures 14.3.1 Reference Documents 14.3.2 MetalCased Concrete Piles Section includes reference standards and additional requirements for seismic design of composite structures. 14.3 Composite Steel and Concrete Structures 14.3.1 Reference Documents 14.3.2 General 14.3.3 Seismic Requirements for Composite Steel and Concrete Structures 14.3.4 Metal-Cased Concrete Piles 14.4 Masonry New subsections clarify the use of seismic design standards for composite structures, but this does not appear to be a substantive change.

14.4 Masonry 14.4.3 Classification of Shear Walls 14.4.4 Anchorage Forces

Subsections specify that all masonry walls not isolated from the SFRS shall be considered shear walls and that the ACI 530 wall anchorage equations cannot replace the ASCE 7 anchorage requirements.

Sections 14.4.3 and 14.4.4 have been deleted, so the requirements revert to ACI 530. This does not appear to be a substantive change as long as ACI 530-08 is consistent with the ASCE 7-05 requirements.

Whether or not this is a substantive change depends on the requirements in ACI 530-08. Per Harris: Table 12.2-1 of ASCE 7-10 contains the requirements of AAC as published in the 2009 NEHRP Part 1. The corresponding modifications for Chapter 14.4 (.3) are not included in ASCE 7-10.
