SEISMIC DESIGN BASE SHEAR 2

SEISMIC DESIGN BASE SHEAR

Base shear is an estimate of the maximum expected lateral force on the base of the structure due to seismic activity. It is calculated using the seismic zone, soil material, and building code lateral force equations (Figure 10.3). … Proximity to potential sources of seismic activity (such as geological faults)
