Seismic Design of Structures According to ASCE/SEI 7-22

COURSE NO: S03-028
Seismic Design of Structures According to ASCE/SEI 7-22
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides basic information on seismic design of structures according to ASCE/SEI 7-22.


Throughout the years, engineers have observed that some structural systems perform better during earthquakes than others. Based on these observations, it was deduced that the selection of a structural system type is a key and early step in the seismic design criteria for buildings.


Structural systems are categorized based on three characteristics: material of construction (e.g. concrete, masonry, steel, or wood), how lateral forces induced by earthquake shaking are resisted by the structure and the relative quality of earthquake-resistant design and detailing. This course will describe the ASCE/SEI 7 procedures for determining the required seismic strength, stiffness, and detailing of structures in the Seismic Design Category (SDC) B through SDC F.


This 3 PDH online course is applicable to civil and structural engineers as well as other technical professionals interested in learning about seismic analysis, and structures design 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:

  • Familiarizing with the selection process of the structural system
  • Familiarizing with the identification of system design coefficients
  • Gaining a general overview on how to analyze and design structural elements
  • Learning about seismic loads calculation and the checking of configuration irregularities
  • Understanding how to design diaphragms and how to check drift and stability
  • Learning how to detail connections and other elements
