RE: Re[2]: Seismic and Wind Zone Maps

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Traditionally the "Tri-Service Manual" is the Army TM 5-809-1 / Air
Force AFM 88-3, Chap. 1, Structural Design Criteria Loads", Latest Ed.
May 1992.

Recently the Army decided to refer more to the ASCE 7-95 and created a
new publication EI 01S010, August 1, 1996, "Engineering Instructions,
Load Assumptions for Buildings".

For seismic design, the Army, Navy, and Air Force still use the Army TM
5-809-10, Navy NAVFAC P-355, Air Force AFM 88-3, Chap 13, Seismic Design
for Buildings, latest edition October 1992.

Be careful when using the military documents for wind design.  Some use
fastest mile wind loads, some use peak gust, and some use a 30 year

     What is the Tri-service Manual and how does it relate to NAVFAC ?
     to order the Manual (is there a web site)? Thanks

I haven't seen anything recently like the ATC 3-06 maps, but some states
(e.g.Oregon) have local amendments which include maps with county lines.
USGS has a series of color hazard maps with state lines, see .

For worldwide seismic info, look at the Tri-service manual, or see UBC
Appendix Chapter 16, Div. II.
