The zone factor is .4 (zone 4), and the others are coefficients that are derived from the near-source factors depending on proximity to faults (tables S and T).

I have a table of design values for structural design for a site in
Northern California. The tables refer to Seismic Zone Factor from "Table
16I," and Seismic Cooefficients from Tables 16Q and 16R.

In what publication do these tables appear? CBC/UBC '97? Or some other?

Thanks.
