What is the rationale regarding the building period limitation in reference to any building code (i.e. ASCE 7-95 eq. 188.8.131.52.1-1 times Cu from table 184.108.40.206, ASCE 7-98 eq. 220.127.116.11-1 times Cu from table 18.104.22.168, UBC 97 Method B can only be 30% to 40% greater than eq. 30-8 depending on the seismic zone). Part b of my question is how does this relate (if there is any relationship) to high-rise structure? Thanks
