RE: Seismic loads on mechanical and electrical components

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Yes, but the case at hand is located outside USA, in zone 2 (Aa = 0.15), and furthermore it does not sound reasonable that the vertical seismic force is so dependent on the component elevation above grade.

I will comment only on the fact that the actual vertical acceleration in
the '94 Northridge event was approx. equal to the horizontal acceleration
in several areas- that is about 0.9W.
