Does anyone know off hand if the New Jersey edition of the IBC (either 2000 or 2003) differentiates its seismic design from the regular IBC.


Specifically, I am looking at 1615.1.1 Site class definitions where the designer is directed by IBC to assume Site Class D if the soil properties are unknown.  Is that the same case for the NJ Edition?
