Steel Moment Frames in Seismic Zone 0

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am preparing to design a 4 story moment frame office building on the east coast (seismic zone 0) and was wondering what other folks have been doing.  The majority of my design is in zone 4 areas and I don't think all of the special requirements (i.e. increased preheat, RBS, test data, notch tough wire, back-up bar removal)  I spec here would be relative.  The only two things I was considering was requiring notch tough wire and removal of the bottom backup bar.  What are some other engineers in this area requiring?  What is standard practice?
