I am currently looking at NBC 2010 Earthquake Load and Effects to design foundations for a concrete silo. I have read the Users Guide - 2010 Structural Commentaries (Part 4 of Division B) and it states that NBC subsection 4.1.8 apply only to the seismic design of new buildings and should not be used for special structures. So concrete silos are not applied to this?? Where do I go for special structure design for seismic effects. International Building Code?? Anyone have thoughts on this? I am working out of the states and would like to know where to find any information.
