ASCE is Seeking Public Comments on Supplement to ASCE 7-16

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) will conduct a public comment period on Supplement 2 for ASCE/SEI 7-16, Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures. The ASCE public comment period will be held from Nov. 25, 2020, through Jan. 11, 2021.

This supplement updates two sections of the standard: Section 12.9.1.5, which clarifies Horizontal Shear Distribution provisions for torsional effects, and Section 16.4.2.1, which updates Force-Controlled Actions provisions to align with industry standards specifically the 2017 PEER TBI Guideline.  

To participate in the comment period, contact James Neckel, ASCE’s codes and standards coordinator, at [email protected] or call (703) 295-6176.
