Re: Maximum seismic sway

Dr. Khabbazan,

I would think the code drift limits would still govern regardless of the method of analysis used. Which code are you designing toward and what to performance level is the design criteria? (i.e. is this an essential facility)

Check ASCE 7-05 for drift limits.
