Seismic Example

Is there a good tutorial or example of a small building (wood, steel or masonry) available that uses the latest NHERP or FEMA 450 approach to seismic analysis?  I'm looking for a general methodology.  Is there an Excel spreadsheet available?

thanks, Dik

Sorry, that's NEHRP

Try this link  http://www.bssconline.org/

You will find FEMA 451 - NEHRP Recommended Provisions - Design Examples.

I don't think the hard copy is available yet, but the entire publication is online.

RE: Seismic Example

Excellent article... thanks, Dik

RE: Seismic Example

Simplified Building Design for Wind and Earthquake Forces by James Ambrose and Kimitry Vergun is an excellent reference book for the types of structures you mention.
