Near-Source Factor for non-structural components

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hey Cal-masters,
 
Does UBC 1629.4.2 only allow "N sub a" to be 1.1 for main LRFS?  The
phrase says "structures", but is this assumed to apply to section 1632
stuff - equipment?
Gotta water tank in a building on the San Andreas fault.
 
The blue book C104.4.3 last paragraph seems to indicate the 1.1 is
mainly dependant on conditions 1-5, in a way that is generally
attributable to the LRFS.  
 
TIA,
