RE: EPA value Panama

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I presume that you intended Panama City, Panama. 
You really should be using the current IBC methodology.  The document link below has the Canal Zone seismic values if that is close enough for you.
This should get you close.

Hello everyone,

Is anybody aware of a recommended value for EPA in Panama City?, I mean, not the value that I could get from the UBC-97 recommended values, but something from a local site specific response spectra... just for comparing purposes, I'am checking a RC building and I'm having some problems with the total lateral displacement, I'd like to suggest the owner to perform a site specific response spectra but I'd like to have some reference values before.

Thanks in advance.,
