I am confused! I may just be missing something but here is my quandary.
Chapter 11 has the same seismic formulas as earlier codes. But then there is
chapter 12 the title of which uses the term, "Building Structures." This
yields higher base shears than chapter 11. Which one should I use?

I think I just answered my question. I was looking at section 12.14, not
12.8 which covers the equivalent force method.

But what IS chapter 11 for?
