Subject: Joints in buildings

I know some formulas and recommendations to determine the distance between expansion joints due to thermal action. But somebody knows any reference to determine distance between joints due to seismic action? I am designing commercial and industrial buildings. I would like to know this for concrete and for steel buildings
Thank you, very much
