Sesimic Maps

Sesimic Maps

Are the seismic maps available electronically?  I need to determine seismic coefficients fairly often and being able to zoom in on an area would be a big help.  I bought an electronic version of the whole ASCE standard but it only works on one computer (my office machine) and I'm often on my laptop away from the office.  All I need are the seismic maps.

RE: Sesimic Maps

A brief look at the maps there seems to show differences between them.  Does ASCE 7 use of one or the other?  I'm calculating seismic response of liquid storage tanks.  The API 650 code refers to the mapped ASCE 7 spectral response accelerations 5% damped 0.2 seconds and 5% damped 1 second for 2% 50 year probability.  The API code also uses 0.40 times the short parameter in lieu of looking it up.

WillisV - great link.  Appreciate it.

RE: Sesimic Maps

heh - yes.

I just changed jobs so I'm a bit discombobulated.  I've now put it on my favorites so I won't forget it.
