Equivalent Static Lateral Force Method: Uniform Building Code-1988
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) (SEA0C-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.
