Overview of the Seismic Design Process Based on ASCE/SEI 7-22

COURSE NO: S02-039
Overview of the Seismic Design Process Based on ASCE/SEI 7-22
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents an overview of the seismic design process based on ASCE/SEI 7-22.


This course describes the seismic design process for new buildings and presents background information on structural dynamics principles that serve the seismic design process. Also, this course explains performance-based design as it relates to seismic design, discusses the design for tsunami, and examines soil-structure interaction as part of the seismic analysis. Finally, it depicts how energy dissipation systems can be used to modify the response of a structure to ground shaking and minimize damage.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to structural and civil engineers as well as other technical professionals interested in learning about the seismic design processes based on ASCE/SEI 7-22 code.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Learning how to determine seismic design criteria: identify the risk category, level of seismic hazard, and seismic design category
  • Understanding structure design: select a structural system, develop a preliminary design, perform analysis to predict the seismic response, ensure adequate strength and stiffness, and detail the structure to comply with system-specific requirements
  • Familiarizing with anchor and brace nonstructural components: design anchorage and bracing for nonstructural components
  • Understanding the background on structural dynamics principles that serve the seismic design process
