# P 100 - Values for Response Spectrum analysis

## P 100 - Values for Response Spectrum analysis

(OP)
Can somebody help me with some values for the Scale factor in the definition of the response spectrum ? Especially for the definition of romanian p100 - 2006 seismic code (or EC8).

When defining a response function in etabs / sap2000 the values for the accelerations represent fractions of G (gravity acceleration) ?

any help is apreciated, especially from design practice.

Thanks

Daca ma poate ajuta cineva cu informatii despre modelarea spectrului de proiectare din P100 in etabs. mie, din ce am calculat, mi-a rezultat o accel max de o,16 m/s2. e corect ???

problem solved. just in case, if someone wants to know:

for Romania, ag=0.16 G, reinf. concrete building, ductility factor 4.725 the starting value for design spectrum is 1.6 m/s2 at T=0, with 0.9 m/s2 between 0.07 and 0.07 seconds.

scale factor "1" for N m units

Sal...te pricepi la ETABS ? As vrea sa ma ajuti si pe mine cand am ceva probleme. Sunt unele lucruri pe care nu le inteleg...dc vrei putem sa vb pe messenger. Id meu e : monkey_trial2000@yahoo.com
Multumesc. Sal
