Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures gives requirements for dead, live, soil, wind, snow, rain, and earthquake loads, as well as their combinations. The requirements described in this standard—which is a complete revision of ANSI A58.1-1982—are suitable for inclusion in building codes and other design documents. The Standard also includes a Commentary, which describes the basis of the requirements.

The structural load requirements provided by this standard are intended for use by architects, structural engineers, and those engaged in preparing and administering local building codes.
