MINIMUM BASE SHEAR FOR DRIFT CONTROL OF TALL BUILDINGS

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear all,
 
Can we neglect minimum base shear criteria for drift control? I am designing a tall building and if I calculate base shear based on structure period, it will be less than minimum base shear specified in code, but it is not clear if I can neglect this criteria or not.
 
Thanks
