UBC 1633 - Detailed Systems Design Requirements

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Do any of the design requirements in UBC '97 section 1633 apply to Zone 1
structures?

1633.1 -"General" says "All building components in Seismic Zones 2, 3, and 4
shall be designed to resist the 'forces' prescribed herein..."  
Does that statement mean that the whole section, including deformation
compatibility, only applies to Zones 2, 3 and 4?  

Thanks,

Peter
