Brian Veit: A first draft of the International Building Code (new code for the year 2000) may be obtained from ICBO. The cost is free for ICBO members or $10.00 for non-members. This is a good opportunity to review the code and give your input on any changes and to give recommendations on what should be in the code along with its organization of information. A faxed request can be made, 562-699-4522. ---------- > From: BVeit <BVeit(--nospam--at)aol.com> > To: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org > Subject: Re: '97 code seismic map -- Questions, questions, questions > Date: Tuesday, March 17, 1998 6:10 PM > > Bill Sherman writes: <<I recently compared the 1997 UBC requirements with the > 1994 UBC requirements for a project in Seismic Zone 2B, and also found the > lateral coefficient to be much higher in 1997.>> > > Will the year 2000 code follow the '97 seismic provisions, or will they be > entirely new (again) as some have suggested? > > Is the fine tuning of the new code warranted with respect to the variability > of naturally occuring phenomena such as earthquakes? > > Should we even bother to learn the '97 seismic provisions? > > Brian Veit, P.E. > >
