ASCE 7 and its commentary provide information on some loads and load combinations that are not addressed in the IBC. As noted in Chap. 1, this text addresses the national model building code (IBC) and the national consensus standard (ASCE 7). When a design is submitted to a building department, the design must conform to the building code as adopted by that jurisdiction.

For a beam or girder, this area can be calculated by multiplying the tributary width times the span of the member. 2. The tributary width is generally measured from midway between members on one side of the member under consideration to midway between members on the other side. For members spaced a uniform distance apart, the tributary width is equivalent to the spacing between members. Since tributary areas for adjacent members do not overlap, all distributed loads are assumed to be supported by the nearest structural member.

4. S. Customary System units. The abbreviations for these units are also summarized after the Contents.
