  • A shear wall supported by a shallow foundation system is a commonly used seismic-force-resisting structural building system, yet there are many unresolved issues regarding their design and performance. One of the major changes in the traditional seismic design procedures adopted in the 1997 Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Building Retrofit NEHRP Guidelines was to allow mobilization of the ultimate capacity and rocking behavior of shallow foundations to reduce the ductility demands… CONTINUE READING
