RE: 2006 IBC Seismic Map CD (USGS Web site)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Based on the information that I have from Dr. S.K. Ghosh The CDs for IBC 2000 or 2003 are not fully compatible for IBC 2006.
The best way it to do the procedure that I outlined on my previous post, this means that EACH time you need the seismic design parameters to USGS web site ( )

Subject: 2006 IBC Seismic Map CD


Good morning,


The 2006 IBC refers to a CD by Leyendecker, Frankel, and Rukstales for determination of seismic design parameters.  I have a 2000 IBC version of that CD, and it is very helpful. 


Is the newer (apparently, 2004) version of that CD any different from the 2000 version? 

How can I get that newer CD?
