Equivalent Static Lateral Force Method: Uniform Building Code—1988
- 278 Downloads
The earthquake resistant design regulations of the 1988 Uniform Building Code [UBC-88 (International Conference of Building Officials 1988)] are based mainly on the publication by the Structural Engineers Association of California (1988) (SEAOC-1988) entitled Recommended Lateral Force Requirements and Tentative Commentary, which is based to some extent on the provisions of the Applied Technology Council (1978) recommendations (ATC3–06–1978) and of the Building Seismic Safety Council (1988) guidelines (BSSC-1988). The key UBC-1988 provisions for earthquake resistant design are presented in this chapter.
