This workshop will highlight changes in the IBC 2018 and ASCE 7 codes related to site-specific seismic studies. Define and differentiate potentially confusing terms related to site specific studies. Provide background on purpose of code changes and clarify when exceptions are allowed and penalties must be taken. Highlight recent changes in USGS tools and provide guidance on how these changes relate to the 2018 IBC generalized approach. This workshop will also provide discussion on the basics of what should be included in site-specific studies, but will NOT focus on details of how they are done. It will also include a panel discussion identifying potential industry challenges associated with site-specific seismic studies.
