CFE Seismic Design (Mexico)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We are designing an industrial building in Mexico in accordance with the CFE Code. I see that the seismic base shear coefficient can be calculated as c/Q. My question is -
is c/Q strength or allowable stress level?
Thank you very much for any guidance!
