On 9/8, Mark Pemberton asked about design forces for connections of SCBF's to
foundations.

It is not necessary to design the foundation itself for Omega-0 forces.
However, the attachment of the base plate to the column and of the base plate to
the foundation should be designed for these forces.

By the way, if the foundation will uplift, under the application of omega-0
level forces, or if it will rock, the omega-o forces need not be taken greater
than the forces that cause that uplift or rocking. In effect, the foundation
becomes the weak link.
