Cranes and earthquake loads

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Here goes my first question to the list:

I have been asked whether a crane in a steel-frame building
we have been designing needs to be designed for earthquake
loads.  I can't find anything about cranes in our earthquake
code so I was wondering what is done elsewhere and also if
anyone has had any experience with this. 

Thanks in advance for any information!
