Eqn 12.8-1 Seismic Base Shear V = CS*W

Eqn 12.8-2 Siesmic Response Coefficient Cs = SDS/(R/Ie)

Cl 11.4.4 or 11.4.7 Sdesign Spectral Response Acceleration SDS = 0.3547

Tab 12.2-1 Response Modification factor R = 3.25

Cl 11.5.1 Importance factor Ie = 1

Eqn 12.8-2 Calculated Siesmic Response Coefficient Cs = 0.3547/(3.25/1)

Maximum Cs

12.8.2 Fundamental Period T = 0.96

Max Cs Csmax = SD1/[T*(R/Ie)]

11.4.4 or 11.4.7 Design Spectral response acceleration parameter at a period of 1.0s SD1 = 0.292

Csmax = 0.292x/[0.96x(3.25/1)]
= 0.0936

Cs Based on maximum limit = 0.0936

minimum Cs

Min Cs = 0.044*SDS*Ie >=0.01

= 0.004x0.3547x1
= 0.0156

S1 = 0.225

If S1 >0.6g ; Min Cs = 0.5*S1/(R/Ie)


= 0.0156

Min Cs = 0.0156

Siesmic Response Coefficient Cs = 0.0936
