I am working on an industrial project outside the US, and the client wants
us to design as per UBC. The area is potentially zone 3 or 4. Our
structures are usually highly non-regular (mass, stiffness...etc). UBC
therefore requires a dynamic analysis.
My question to you is where can we get ground motion information specific to
a site outside the US and yet satisfying UBC?. The information reuired is
either: 1) site specific Ca & Cv, 2) site specific response spectra or 3)
local time histories?
Thank you in advance for your help
