seismic forces

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Based on the 2006 IBC (ASCE07-05), the seismic accelerations for Hayward, CA (right on the Hayward fault) appear to be about 60% lower than those for Sikestone, MO, and about the same as for Summerville, SC. 
Historic (1812 and 1886) considerations aside, any comments?
