RE: Design Acceleration of Zone 3 in Jordan (Middle East) ...

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For the current building code, I wiould suggest that you contact MID Contracting in Jordan.

According to the US Army Corps of Engineers TI 809-04,
S sub s = 1.24
S sub L = 0.56

The S sub s and the S sub L are the same as defined in the NEHRP Provisions which are available on line at

Does someone here has the current building code of Jordan (Middle East)?

I would like to know the corresponding design ground acceleration

of  "Zone 3; Mercalli 8".

Thanks in advance,
