Maximum base shear

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
UBC 97 formula 30-5 page 2-14 states that
the base shear need not exceed the value of the following;
V=2.5 Ca I W/R
for zone 4, at less than 2 km from a fault and using
maxumum values of Ca and I, and R=8.5 for SMRF(Concrete) This was 12 in UBC 88
Ca = .44(1.5)
This says that  .243G  is a maximum for buildings.
Could this g force be exceeded by an  intensity 7
Thanks in advance.
