NED UNIVERSITY OF ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY

SITE CONSIDERATIONS

- Chapter 3 highlights different types of soil hazards that can damage a structure, in case of an earthquake.
- In conjunction some outlines are provided in order to select a site as to avoid maximum damage from these hazards.
- These hazards are listed as ;
- Fault rupture hazard
- Liquefaction
- Landslide and Slope instability
- Sensitive clays

SOILS AND FOUNDATIONS

- Chapter 4 emphasizes on the component where the SSI (Soil-Structure-Interaction) takes place.
- Sections 4.1 – 4.3 define the different terminologies and terms used in the Chapter.
- However, the core information is divided into the rest of the sections which forms the backbone of the chapter.
- 4.4 – Soil Profiles
- 4.5 – Requirements for Foundation
- 4.6 – Seismic Soil Pressures and Soil Retaining Structures

- Soil profile development procedures are identified here.
- Vs Method (Average shear wave velocity method)
- N Method (Average field penetration resistance method)
- Su Method (Average undrained shear strength method)

- Foundation requirements in different conditions are presented here, as to make certain that the underlying soil does not impose significant damage on the superstructure.
- Rules given in this Chapter for foundations are applicable to the foundations of reinforced concrete, structural steel, timber and masonry buildings.
- Some of the topics discussed are:
- Foundation Construction in Areas in Seismic Zones 2, 3, 4
- Superstructure-to-Foundation Connection
- Piles, Caps and Caissons
- Foundation Tie Beams
- Wall Foundations of Masonry and Timber Buildings
- Footings on or adjacent to Slopes

- This section presents different soil pressure coefficients (and distribution) at rest and incase of an earthquake, on retaining structures for design and analysis purposes. Such as:
- Total Active and Passive Pressure Coefficients
- Dynamic Active and Passive Soil Pressures
- Dynamic Soil Pressures in Layered Soils

- Factor of safety against sliding (F.S. = 1.1)
- Factor of safety against over-turning (F.S. = 1.3)
- Reduction factor to convert the dynamic internal forces applicable for section design of RCC (RZA = 1.5) and Steel sheet piles (RZA = 2.5).

STRUCTURAL DESIGN REQUIREMENTS

- Chapter 5 is divided into five sub divisions
- Division I – General Design Requirements
- Division II – Snow Loads
- Division III – Wind Design
- Division IV – Earthquake Design
- Division V – Soil Profile Types

- This division provides the general design requirements applicable to all structures.
- Sections 5.1 to 5.4 present a general description of the terminologies used in the division.
- Section 5.5 presents the requirements to achieve a stable structure, discussing issues such as; complete load path, overturning, distribution of horizontal shear force, anchorage, etc.
- Section 5.6 defines the partition loads on buildings and access floor system as 21 psf & 10.5 psf, respectively.
- Section 5.7 defines the live loads and their distribution on the floors according to different occupancies, enlisted in Table 5-A.
- Along side it also discusses the cases for live load reduction as given by the following equation:

TABLE 5-A – UNIFORM AND CONCENTRATED LOADS

- Section 5.11 (Other Minimum Loads) provides description of other loads and some other guidelines, such as;
- Impact loads
- Interior wall loads
- Retaining walls
- Water accumulation
- Heliport and heli-stop landings

- 1.4 D (5.12-1)
- 1.2 D + 1.6 L + 0.5 (Lr or S) (5.12-2)
- 1.2 D + 1.6 (Lror S) + (f1L or 0.8 W) (5.12-3)
- 1.2 D + 1.3 W + f1L + 0.5 (Lr or S) (5.12-4)
- 1.2 D + 1.0 E + (f1L + f2S) (5.12-5)
- 0.9 D ± (1.0 E or 1.3 W) (5.12-6)

- The allowable design combinations being;
- D (5.12-7)
- D + L + (Lrr or S) (5.12-8)

- 1.2 D + f1 L+ 1.0 Em (5.12-17)
- 0.9 D ± 1.0 Em (5.12-18)

- UBC-97 is referred for calculating the minimum design load:
- Pf= Ce I Pg(40-1-1)

- Where:
- Ce = snow exposure factor (see Table A-16-A).
- I = importance factor (see Table A-16-B).
- Pg =basic ground snow load, psf (N/m2) – (For 50-year mean recurrence interval maps)

- Rs = S/40-0.024

- Rs = S/40-1/2

- Rs = snow load reduction in kilo-Newton per square meter (lb/ft2) per degree of pitch over 20 degrees.
- S = total snow load in kilo-Newton per square meter (lb/ft2).

- 5.20 defines the wind pressure on a surface as:
P = CeCqqsIw(5.20-1)

- Where
- Ce = combined height, exposure and gust factor coefficient as given in Table 5-G.
- Cq = pressure coefficient for the structure or portion of structure under consideration as given in Table 5-H.
- Iw = importance factor as set forth in Table 5-K.
- P = design wind pressure.
- qs = wind stagnation pressure at the standard height of 10 meters (33 feet) as set forth in Table 5-F.

- Where
- Unless detailed wind data is available;
- All the structures inland shall be designed to resist a wind velocity of not less than 144 km per hour (90 mph) at a height of 10 meters (33 ft)
- All the structures along the coast shall be designed to resist a wind velocity of not less than 180 km per hour (109 mph) at a height of 10 meters (33 ft).

- Design Basis Ground Motion is that ground motion that has a 10 percent chance of beingexceeded in 50 years as determined by a site-specific hazard analysis or may be determined from a hazard map.
- Design Response Spectrum is an elastic response spectrum for 5 percent equivalent viscous damping used to represent the dynamic effects of the Design Basis Ground Motion for the design of structures in accordance with Sections 5.30 and 5.31.
- Soft Storey is one in which the lateral stiffness is less than 70 percent of the stiffness of the storey above.
