roger, i´m afraid there´s no such thing as a "proper" seismic load but anyway, i agree detailing is as important as considering adequate seismic loads rodrigo lema from mendoza, argentina -----Mensaje original----- De: Roger Turk <73527.1356(--nospam--at)compuserve.com> Para: SEAOC Listservice <seaint(--nospam--at)seaint.org> Fecha: viernes 4 de septiembre de 1998 21:11 Asunto: higher loads or better details. >Of course, my post should have read: > >Bill, > >Neither, otherwise I agree with you.
