SUMMARY A recently completed California Strong Motion Instrumentation Program (CSMIP) data interpretation project used recorded ground and floor motion data to evaluate a key ASCE/SEI 7-05 (and 7-10) equation for seismic design of acceleration-sensitive building nonstructural components. CSMIP motions from 73 earthquakes recorded in 151 fixed-base buildings were used in the evaluation. An improved equation was developed with two categories of revisions. First, the current code formula… CONTINUE READING
