SOIL PROFILE TYPES - 97 UBC - 1636.2
 
S     HARD ROCK W/ MEASURED SHEAR VELOCITY>5000 FT/SEC
 
S     ROCK W/ 2500< SHEAR VELOCITY<=5000 FT/SEC
 
S     VERY DENSE SOIL AND SOFT ROCK W/ 1200< SHEAR VELOCITY<=2500 FT/SEC
 
S     STIFF SOIL W/ 600<=SHEAR VELOCITY<=1200 FT/SEC
 
S     A SOIL PROFILE W/ SHEAR VELOCITY<600 FT/SEC
          OR MORE THAN 10 FT OF SOFT CLAY W/ PI>20, wmc >=40% &su < 500 PSF
 
S     SOIL REQUIRING SITE-SPECIFIC EVALUATION
 
NOTE : WHEN SOIL PROPERTIES ARE NOT KNOWN IN SUFFICIENT DETAIL
USE TYPE SD
 
 
METRIC CONVERISON
5000 FT/ SEC = 1500 M/S
2500 = 760
1200 = 360
600 = 180

I am working with Robot 97 and it uses the UBC 97's seismic analysis. I have UBC 94.
Please, I need to know the definition of the new types of soils.
I live in Venezuela and it is not easy to get that information fast.
 
Thank you very much.
