2009 IBC Handbook Structural Provisions,

Internationally, code officials recognize the need for a modern, up-to-date building code addressing the design and installation of building systems through requirements emphasizing performance. The 2009 International Building Code® (IBC®) is designed to meet those needs through model code regulations that safeguard the public health and safety in all communities, large and small. This comprehensive code establishes minimum regulations for building systems using prescriptive and performance-based provisions. It is founded on broad-based principles that make possible the use of alternate materials as well as new, improved design methodologies. The changes in the structural provisions of the 2009 IBC when compared to previous editions of the IBC and legacy codes (Uniform Building Code, National Building Code, Standard Building Code) create the need for a comprehensive work that discusses the changes and expands on many of the new or improved provisions. This book, the 2009 IBC Handbook—Structural Provisions, is intended to do just that. By helping code users understand and properly apply the structural provisions in Chapters 16 through 23 of the 2009 IBC, this handbook is a valuable resource for those who design, plan review, inspect or construct buildings or other structures regulated by the 2009 IBC. Although it will prove useful to a broad range of individuals, it was written primarily so that architects, engineers and code officials can understand the IBC’s provisions and gain insight into their underlying basis and intent. To that end, the handbook’s numerous figures, tables and examples help clarify and illustrate the proper application of many code provisions. One of the significant differences between the structural provisions in the UBC and the IBC is that the IBC adopts national (structural) standards by reference rather than transcribing the structural provisions of the standards into the code itself. This is true for structural loads as well as structural materials. This trend has continued with each subsequent edition of the IBC to the extent that the 2009 IBC relies on the referenced standards even more than the previous editions. Therefore, in many cases the discussion in this handbook pertains to the provisions in the referenced standard rather than the IBC itself. The 2009 IBC Handbook—Structural Provisions covers four major structural categories: 􀀍 Structural load effects and design provisions of Chapter 16 􀀍 Special inspection, structural testing and structural observation provisions of Chapter 17 􀀍 Foundation and soil provisions of Chapter 18 􀀍 Specific structural material provisions for concrete, masonry, steel and wood in Chapters 19 through 23 As an added benefit to readers, ICC has included a CD-ROM containing the complete structural handbook as well as a variety of helpful resource documents such as 2003 NEHRP Recommended Provisions for Seismic Regulations for New Buildings and Other Structures with Accompanying Commentary (FEMA 450, Parts 1 and 2), NEHRP Recommended Provisions: Design Examples (FEMA 451), NEHRP Recommended Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures: Training and Instructional Materials (FEMA 451B), Seismic Considerations for Steel Storage Racks Located in Areas Accessible to the Public (FEMA 460), Homebuilders’ Guide to Earthquake-Resistant 􀀶􀁗􀁕􀁘􀁆􀁗􀁘􀁕􀁄􀁏 􀀳􀁕􀁒􀁙􀁌􀁖􀁌􀁒􀁑􀁖 􀁌􀁌􀁌 Preface Design and Construction (FEMA 232), Communicating with Owners and Managers of New Buildings on Earthquake Risk: A Primer for Design Professionals (FEMA 389), Designing for Earthquakes: A Manual for Architects (FEMA 454) and CodeMaster—2006 IBC Seismic Design—2006 IBC, 2003 NEHRP, ASCE 7-05. 􀁌􀁙 􀀕􀀓􀀓􀀜 􀀬􀀥􀀦 􀀫􀁄􀁑􀁇􀁅􀁒􀁒􀁎 About the International Code Council The International Code Council® (ICC®) is a nonprofit membership association dedicated to protecting the health, safety, and welfare of people by creating better buildings and safer communities.

Finally, a resource that bridges the gap between the worlds of green building and residential building codes – Going Green with the International Residential Code. The first book of its kind on the market, this indispensable "code-consultant" takes green building concepts one step further and addresses them as they specifically relate to building codes, and in particular, how they relate to the International Residential Code® (IRC). Because the code books themselves do not directly address green construction issues, this book will help the reader make green decisions about construction methods and materials while staying code compliant. Coverage begins with a Building Code Primer that explores basic permitting and regulatory processes. This fundamental knowledge sets the stage for readers to be better able to successfully incorporate green principles into construction projects and avoid costly mistakes that can occur when key processes are not established and followed beforehand. The book then moves to a review of the IRC®, chapter-by-chapter, identifying areas where provisions of the code will affect a green construction project and where in a project there are green options, as well. Using tried-and-true real-life examples of green construction techniques throughout, this is the perfect guide to understanding building codes in today's quest to go green.
