ABSTRACT

Procedures for Developing Multi-Period Response Spectra at Non-Conterminous United States Sites   [open pdf - 33MB]

From the Purpose: "The purpose of this study is to complement proposals to the Provisions Update Committee of the Building Seismic Safety Council that would incorporate multi-period response spectra (MPRS) in the 2020 edition of the 'NEHRP [National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program] Recommended Seismic Provisions for New Buildings and Other Structures' (2020 NEHRP 'Provisions') and related proposals to the ASCE [American Society of Civil Engineers] 7-22 Seismic Subcommittee of the American Society of Civil Engineers for incorporation of MPRS in the ASCE Standard, ASCE/SEI [Structural Engineering Institute] 7-22, 'Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures' (ASCE 7-22). Ultimately, the intent is that the proposed MPRS and related design requirements of ASCE 7-22 would be adopted, by reference, as part of the '2024 International Building Code' (2024 IBC)."
