UBC 1630.2.1 - SEISMIC DEAD LOAD

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello All:

I am re-posting my question here with the subject (I posted it once last week, but missed to include the subject). If you have already please ignore. SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED.

My question is :

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.
