  • Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Buildings (41-23)

    Blue and green cover image of Standard ASCE/SEI 41-23

    Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Buildings, Standard ASCE/SEI 41-23, describes deficiency-based and systematic procedures that use performance-based principles to evaluate and retrofit existing buildings to withstand the effects of earthquakes. The standard presents a three-tiered process for seismic evaluation according to a range of building performance levels by connecting targeted structural performance and the performance of nonstructural components with seismic hazard levels. The deficiency-based procedures allow evaluation and retrofit efforts to focus on specific potential deficiencies deemed to be of concern for a specified set of building types and heights. The systematic procedure, applicable to any building, sets forth a methodology to evaluate the entire building in a rigorous manner.

  • Tier 1 Checklists for Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Buildings: Fillable Forms for Stan

    Cover image for the Tier 1 Checklists for Standard ASCE/SEI 41-23

    Tier 1 Checklists for Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Buildings: Fillable Forms for Standard ASCE/SEI 41-23 is a complete collection of the screening checklists included in Chapter 17 and Appendix C of Standard 41-23. The evaluation checklists, covering a variety of building types and seismicity levels, are offered as fillable PDF forms that can be completed using Adobe Acrobat Reader, version 9.0 or later.

    The collection of 39 forms includes the summary data sheet, Collapse Prevention and Immediate Occupancy checklists, and a nonstructural checklist. The checklists contain criteria for very low, low/moderate, and high seismicity levels.

  • Measurement of Oxygen Transfer in Clean Water ASCE/EWRI 2-22

    Measurement of Oxygen Transfer in Clean Water ASCE/EWRI 2-22
    Measurement of Oxygen Transfer in Clean Water
    , ASCE/EWRI 2-22, provides the latest methods for measuring the rate of oxygen transfer from diffused gas and mechanical oxygenation devices to water. This standard aims to be general enough to be applied to all clean water unsteady-state tests and specific enough to incorporate all essential procedures.

  • Standard Guideline for Investigating and Documenting Existing Utilities (38-22)

    blue and green cover for standard 38-22
    Standard Guideline for Investigating and Documenting Existing Utilities, ASCE/UESI/CI 38-22, endeavors to safeguard public welfare by providing guidance on performing utility investigations and documenting results in a standardized fashion. It serves as both a prescriptive standard and a performance standard. As a prescriptive standard, it provides a series of minimum actions necessary to achieve utility quality level documentation.

  • Wind Tunnel Testing for Buildings and Other Structures, Standard ASCE/SEI 49-21

    Standard ASCE/SEI 49-21
    Wind Tunnel Testing for Buildings and Other Structures, Standard ASCE/SEI 49-21 provides the minimum requirements for conducting and interpreting wind tunnel tests to determine wind loads on buildings and other structures. Wind tunnel tests are used to predict wind loads and responses of a structure, structural components, and cladding to a variety of wind conditions. This standard includes commentary that elaborates on the background and application of the requirements.

  • Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures, ASCE/SEI 7-22

    blue and green cover image
    Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures, ASCE/SEI 7-22 provides the most up-to-date and coordinated loading provisions for general structural design. This standard prescribes design loads for all hazards including dead, live, soil, flood, tsunami, snow, rain, atmospheric ice, seismic, wind, and fire, as well as how to evaluate load combinations. The 2022 edition of ASCE 7, which supersedes ASCE 7-16, coordinates with the most current structural material standards including those from ACI, AISC, AISI, AWC, and TMS.
