Ever-Changing Provisions of Our Building Codes This Seminar is largely about major, far-reaching changes in our wind and seismic provisions in the last 15 to 20 years. This will include the very substantive changes in wind as well as seismic design provisions from ASCE 7-10 to ASCE 7-16, which will be reflected in our next code. It will also include the substantive changes that are seriously being considered for inclusion in ASCE 7 beyond its 2016 edition. These changes will alter seismic design practice materially and Dr. Ghosh has concerns about them, which he would like to share with us. This is a chance to review where we have been and gives us a look to the future with the insight of someone who has been intimately involved in the structural code development process.
