RE: CBC CODE SR VALUE

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The spectral ratio is a scaling factor that is used to determine the base
shear when you're performing a dynamic analysis. It is defined in section
1631A.5.4 of the CBC. Note that this is only applicable to schools and
hospitals.
