The 2006 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual Volume 3: Building Design Examples for Steel and Concrete provides a step-by-step approach to properly applying the structural/seismic provisions of the 2006 International Building Code
and SEAOC's 1999 Blue Book. This new edition has been completely revised to reflect the latest design methods contained in the 2006 IBC.
The examples in Volume 3 illustrate practical application of requirements for the following structures:

This is the third entry in the three-volume 2006 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual. The first series completed publication in 2003. These documents have been developed by the Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC) with funding provided by SEAOC. Their purpose is to provide guidance on the interpretation and use of the seismic requirements in the 2006 International Building Code (IBC), published by the International Code Council; in the ASCE Standard, ASCE/SEI 7-05;
and in SEAOC's 1999 Recommended Lateral Force Requirements and Commentary
(also called the Blue Book).
The Structural/Seismic Design Manual was developed to fill a void that exists between the commentary of the Blue Book, which explained the basis for the code provisions, and everyday structural engineering design practice. The Structural/Seismic Design Manual illustrates how the provisions of the code are used. The examples shown do not necessarily illustrate the only appropriate methods of seismic design, and the document is not intended to establish a minimum standard of care. Engineering judgment must be exercised when applying these design examples to real projects.
Volume 1: Code Application Examples, provides step-by-step examples for using individual code provisions, such as how to compute base shear or building period. Volumes 2 and 3: Building Design Examples, furnish examples of seismic design of common types of buildings. In Volumes 2 and 3, important aspects of whole buildings are designed to show, calculation-by-calculation, how the various seismic requirements of the code are implemented in a realistic design.
Volume 3 provides examples that illustrate the seismic design of the following structures:
1. Steel Concentrically Braced Frames.
2. Eccentrically Braced Frame.
3. Special Moment Frame.
4. Special Plate Shear Walls.
5. Reinforced Concrete Wall.
6. Reinforced Concrete Wall with Coupling Beams.
7. Reinforced Concrete Special Moment-Resisting Frame.
