P 100 - Values for Response Spectrum analysis

P 100 - Values for Response Spectrum analysis

P 100 - Values for Response Spectrum analysis

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.


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 ???

RE: P 100 - Values for Response Spectrum analysis

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
