Wind Loads vs Seismic Loads

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Does Equation 33-2 of the 1997 UBC apply to wind loads as well?

I have a structure whose design base shear is governed by wind. It is being
built adjacent to an existing structure whose base shear is governed by
seismic. I would like to calculate the building deflections so that I may
figure out what kind of clearance I need between the buildings.

Thanks in advance.
