Re: dynamic lateral force procedure

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
It is not possible to analyze and design for seismic using the older 
static methods. They no longer apply. The 3D, three dimensional dynamic 
analysis and design methods must be used now, today. They are 
available. The computer software allows the practical application. 

Quo Vadis?
