2009 NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions: Training and Instructional Materials
The NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures, 2009 Edition (FEMA P-750) is an important resource that translates new knowledge, research results, and design methods for the national standards and building codes. In collaboration with the Building Seismic Safety Council, FEMA has published two supporting documents: 2009 NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions: Design Examples (FEMA P-751CD) and the new 2009 NEHRP Recommended Seismic Provisions: Training and Instructional Materials (FEMA P-752CD). FEMA P-752CD presents a series of PowerPoint slides and instructional materials (student handouts and notes pages) that are aligned with the design examples in FEMA P-751CD. In addition to materials updated from its previous edition (FEMA P-451B CD), FEMA P-752CD includes new units on Ground Motions, Composite/Steel Construction, Pre-Cast Design, and Seismically Isolated Structures, as well as an introduction to the latest versions of NONLIN and EQ Tools, two free software programs for the computation of dynamic response analysis of simple linear and nonlinear structures and design earthquake ground motions.
