Meeting and Technical Seminar:

“Serviceability Design for the Practicing Engineer”

Emily Guglielmo, S.E.


This session will provide practical information and design examples to evaluate the serviceability performance of buildings against requirements of the IBC and ASCE 7. It will provide detailed explanations and examples of applications of code provisions and standards specific to various materials, building systems, and building components. The webinar will also discuss the ways the codes currently address serviceability and how future versions of the code may be adapting serviceability requirements.


Engineers will have a better understanding of serviceability requirements in the building code and reference standards, including examples of common serviceability oversights made during design.
