RE: Effects

You plug the horizontal seismic load effect together with the vertical
seismic load effect into the load combinations.  

12.4.2.2 defines the vertical effect of seismic up or down as a funtion of
dead load times Sds times .2

12.4.3.1 defines QE = effects of horizontal forces from V or Fp..
12.4.2.2 defines D = effect of dead load
 
Are the effects simply the V, Fp and dead load W or is there something else
involved?
