Re: re NEHRP Provisions - 1994, 1997

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear Frank:  

E.V. is developing for BSSC a CD (and it's just about finished) that provides the maps and data for use with the 1997 NEHRP Recommended Provisions and the International Building Code as well as the NEHRP Guidelines for the Seismic Rehabilitation of Existing Buildings and the International Residential Code.  The disk will be sold by USGS and BSSC and the International Code Council is being granted permission to reproduce the CD and include it with copies of the IBC/IRC.  The CD can be searched by latitude/longitude and zipcode, the maps can be printed out, and the soils factor can be accounted for.  Acrobat 4.0 is needed and comes on the CD.

In a somewhat related effort, Dick McConnell is developing for BSSC a county-by-county listing of the relevant MCE data.  That too is almost completed but we have not yet determined exactly how it will be distributed.

I'm making a note to sent you a copy of the CD as soon as it's available.

Ron Hamburger,

Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to provide the very 
informative information that your email messages present.

Do you know if BSSC and/or FEMA, working with E. V. Leyendecker, USGS, is 
going to provide the MCE earthquake hazard data on a CD-ROM for the 1997 
and/or 2000 NEHRP Provisions?  Asking the same question in a different form, 
will ICC provide the MCE earthquake hazard data on CD-ROM for the 2000 IBC?  
It is obvious that the 2000 IBC, Figure 1615 series maps are not readily 
useable in their 2000 IBC, July 1998 Final Draft format.

Do you know if some agency (ASCE, BSSC, and/or FEMA), working with E. V. 
Leyendecker,  will provide the ASCE/FEMA 273 and ASCE/FEMA 310 Standards 
earthquake hazard data for the FEMA 273 Basic Safety Earthquake 1 (BSE-1) and 
Basic Safety Earthquake 2 (BSE-2) on a CD-ROM?

Do you know what the CD-ROM format might be?  By Zip Code, by latitude and 
longitude, and/or some other location designator?

By copy of this email message to others listed in the "CC" list, I am also 
asking them if they have any information concerning the answers to the above 
questions in this email message that they would be willing to share with the 
SEAOSC List Service.
