RE: SOIL PROFILE TYPE FOR STRUCTURE OVER WATER

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
97 UBC provides 6 soil types Sa, Sb, Sc, Sd, Se and Sf.  Soil type Sf
requires a site specific geotechnical investigation and dynamic site
response analysis to determine the seismic coefficients Ca and Cv (see
1629.3) Division V (section 1636) specifies the procedure to be used to
determine the soil profile type.
