About This Item


Full Description

The purpose of this publication is to provide a comprehensive guide, referred to herein as the Guide, for the practical seismic design of metal building systems, which results in designs that are compliant with the seismic requirements of the 2015 International Building Code® (2015 IBC®). It should be noted that this Guide will also be applicable to the 2012 IBC. This publication is an update of an earlier edition of this Guide that was based on the 2006 IBC. The Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) intends for this to be a useful tool for engineers, building officials and plan checkers. It should be noted that the design procedures provided in this Guide are not the only way to achieve compliance with the code; they merely represent one way that has been deemed to be compliant by the author.
