Re: Seismic Load Value R for Pile Foundation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
from asceWhere construction employing posts or poles as
columns embedded in earth or embedded in concrete
footings in the earth is used to resist lateral loads, the
depth of embedment required for posts or poles to
resist seismic forces shall be determined by means of
the design criteria established in the foundation
investigation report.

What R value should be used for seismic analysis of concrete friction piles
 that support a light framed residence on hillside condition? The pile
depth is determined by the flag-pole formula

Thanks in advance,
