Re: Effective Peak Acceleration to Velocity Related Acceleration

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Mr. Eqbal Kassam's dilemma will soon become a common problem with the
introduction of new maps and conversion to spectral design values worldwide.
However, this issue is not one that can be solved without knowing the
specific circumstances for the region and development in question. These
decisions should only be tackled by professionals that have demonstrated
competence in this area and experience in the seismicity of the region in
question. I suggest you hire such an expert(s).
