Yes, you have it right. That's the way we design our braced frame structures. Joyce Fuss, Structural Engineer Lionakis Beaumont Design Group Sacramento, CA joyce(--nospam--at)lbdg.com -----Original Message----- From: 'jwalsh(--nospam--at)saii.com' Sent: Thursday, August 26, 1999 5:53 PM To: Joyce; seaint Subject: Concrete below base We are designing a steel special concentric braced frame, 3 stories, in seismic zone 4 with rectangular concrete footings below the braced bays. Section 1918.104.22.168 appears to require that concrete footings and tie beams be designed for ductile behavior per section 1921. This means lap splices, closely spaced ties throughout, maximum footing width per 1922.214.171.124, etc. as per flexural members of concrete frames. Is this correct or are we missing something?
