Hello All:

Please refer to UBC 1630.2.1, Eqs 30-4 to 30-7.

What is the seismic dead load 'W' in these equations in the context of seismic analysi of a general MS building? Is there a component of a live load in it added to self weight of the structure?

I am aware of its definition given in UBC 1630.1.1. But I am not sure if 'W' includes live load in case of general MS buildings (my perception is it does not).

Would appreceiate any comments/opinions.

-thanks,
Rao.
