ASCE 7-05 and IBC 06

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


My question may be quite basic, but I would appreciate very much your opinion. Is there any discrepancy/ies between of SDs and SD1 values from IBC 2006 vs ASCE 7-05 when you input the same Latitude and Longitude into the Seismic Hazard Curve and Uniform Hazard Response Spectra? (program downloaded from I checked many locations using the IBC 2006 pull down menu, and then ASCE 7 Standard, and found the values for SDs and SD1 are identical respectively.

I was advised by Building Department that only ASCE 7-05 is accepted though. Does it make any difference if the site is located in California? Any hints is greatly appreciated.
