ASCE: American Society of Civil Engineers

ASCE, the American Society of Civil Engineers, is a nonprofit organization that develops and publishes standards utilized by civil engineers in their widely ranging industries. Headquartered near Washington, D.C., United States, ASCE has over 140,000 members worldwide, with over 6,200 of those participating in technical committees to develop ASCE standards. ASCE also serves as the administrator for the U.S. TAGs (United States Technical Advisory Group) to ISO/TCs 98, 165 and 218 (International Organization for Standardization/Technical Committee). Standards from ASCE are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: StandardsSubscriptions@ansi.org or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.

Below are ASCE's best-selling standards. To find additional standards, please use the search bar above.

CI/ASCE 38-02

Standard Guidelines for the Collection and Depiction of Existing Subsurface Utility Data

This Standard presents a credible system for classifying the quality of utility location information that is placed in design plans. It addresses issues such as: how utility information can be obtained; what technologies are available to obtain that information; how that information can be conveyed to the information users; who should be responsible for typical collection and depiction tasks; what factors determine which utility level attribute to assign to data; and what the relative costs and benefits of the various quality levels are. The Standard will assist engineers, project and utility owners, and constructors in developing strategies to reduce risk by improving the relibiality of information on existing subsurface utilities in a defined manner.


ASCE/SEI 7-2016

Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures

Standard ASCE/SEI 7-16 provides requirements for general structural design and includes means for determining various loads and their combinations, which are suitable for inclusion in building codes and other documents.


SEI/ASCE 11-99

Guideline for Structural Condition Assessment of Existing Buildings

Changing economic conditions, concerns for historic preservation, emphasis on fully utilizing conveniently located structures, space shortages, and increasing cost of materials and products used in the construction of new buildings have resulted in a need to evaluate and more fully utilize the existing building inventory. To this end, the standard Guideline for Structural Condition Assessment of Existing Buildings (ASCE 11-90) was developed to provide the design community with guidelines for assessing the structural conditions of existing buildings constructed of combinations of materials including concrete, masonry, metals, and wood. This edition (SEI/ASCE 11-99) replaces ASCE 11-90. It consists of an overview of preliminary and detailed assessment procedures, of materials properties and test methods, and of evaluation procedures for various physical conditions of the structure. The standard is not intended to be inclusive or prescriptive but is expected to serve as a resource document for engineers, owners, and regulatory officials.


SEI/ASCE 32-01

Design and Construction of Frost-Protected Shallow Foundations

This standard addresses the design and construction of frost-protected shallow foundations in areas subject to seasonal ground freezing. Foundation insulation requirements to protect heated and unheated buildings from frost heave are presented in easy-to-follow steps with reference to design tables, climate maps, and other necessary data to furnish a complete frost-protection design. The advantages of this technology include improved construction efficiency over conventional practices, increased energy efficiency, minimized site disturbance, and enhanced frost protection. A commentary is included to provide background information and important technical insights.


ANSI/ASCE 3-91

Standard for the Structural Design of Composite Slabs (ANSI/ASCE 3-91) and Standard Practice for Construction and Inspection of Composite Slabs (ANSI /ASCE 9-91)

American Society of Civil Engineers Standard for the Structural Design of Composite Slabs, ASCE Standard Practice for Construction and Inspection of Composite Slabs (ASCE 3-91 and ASCE 9-91 respectively) presents standards for the structural design and testing of composite slabs and for good construction practice and inspection procedures. In addition, commentaries on both standards are included. The ``Standard for the Structural Design of Composite Slabs'' (ASCE 3-91) and its ``Commentary'' cover such topics as loads, construction stage, strength design, service load design, test procedures, and test results evaluation. The ``Standard Practice for the Construction and Inspection of Composite Slabs'' (ASCE 9-91) and its ``Commentary'' discuss such topics as damage control, connections, concrete placement, shore removal, holes and hole reinforcement. These standards are written in such a form that they may be adopted by reference in a general building code.


ANSI/ASCE/EWRI 56-10 57-10

Guidelines for the Physical Security of Water Utilities (ANSI/ASCE/EWRI 56-10); Guidelines for the Physical Security of Wastewater/Stormwater Utilities (ANSI/ASCE/EWRI 57-10)

Standards ASCE/EWRI 56-10 and 57-10 offer guidelines that apply to the physical security of facilities with potable water source, treatment, and distribution systems, as well as with wastewater collection and treatment systems and stormwater systems.


ASCE MOP 130-2015

Waterfront Facilities Inspection and Assessment

MOP 130 provides engineers with guidelines and tools for inspecting and evaluating the condition of waterfront structures located in seawater and freshwater environments.


ANSI/ASCE/SEI 25-2016

Earthquake-Actuated Automatic Gas Shutoff Devices

Standard ANSI/ASCE/SEI 25-16 provides current minimum functionality requirements for earthquake-actuated automatic gas shutoff devices and systems.


ASCE/SEI 24-2014

Flood Resistant Design and Construction

Standard ASCE/SEI 24-14 provides minimum requirements for design and construction of structures located in flood hazard areas and subject to building code requirements.


ASCE/SEI 48-2019

Design of Steel Transmission Pole Structures

Prepared by the Design of Steel Transmission Pole Structures Standards Committee of the Structural Engineering Institute of ASCE Design of Steel Transmission Pole Structures provides a uniform basis for the design, detailing, fabrication, testing, assembly, and erection of steel tubular structures for electrical transmission poles. These guidelines apply to cold-formed single- and multipole tubular steel structures that support overhead transmission lines. The design parameters are applicable to guyed and self-supporting structures using a variety of foundations, including concrete caissons, steel piling, and direct embedment. Standard ASCE/SEI 48-19 replaces the previous edition (ASCE/SEI 48-11). This standard includes a detailed commentary and appendixes with explanatory and supplementary information. Standard ASCE/SEI 48-19 will be a primary reference for structural engineers and construction managers involved in designing and building electrical transmission lines, as well as engineers and others involved in the electric power transmission industry.
