About ASCE 7 Online

ASCE 7 Standard

ASCE/SEI 7 Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures is an integral part of building codes in the United States. Many of the provisions are adopted by reference in the ICC International Building Code and the NFPA 5000 Building Construction and Safety Code.

Structural engineers, architects, building officials, and those engaged in preparing and administering local building codes will find the structural load requirements essential to their practice.

The information in the ASCE 7 Online Platform provides means for determining design loads specified in Standards ASCE 7-10 and ASCE 7-16.
