Computing the Horizontal Seismic Load Effects for Non-Structural Components as Per ASCE 7-16

The current building code (2018 International Building Code) adopted the ASCE 7‐16 Standard from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) for calculating the horizontal seismic load effects for nonstructural components. As a result, the analytical method for horizontal seismic demand determination must be validated in accordance with chapter 13 of ASCE 7‐16.
