Blue Book Article 7.02.020

An overview of the design of piles, pile caps, and grade beams under ASCE 7-05 and the 2006 IBC (2007 CBC) is provided in Article 7.01.001, Foundation Design Overview. That article explains that the 2006 IBC is based upon provisions initiated by the 2000 NEHRP/2000 IBC provisions. ASCE 7-05 also incorporates substantial changes from Chapter 7 of the 2003 NEHRP Recommended Provisions for Seismic Regulations for New Buildings and Other Structures.
