DESIGN CODES & STANDARDS

According to the 2003 International Building Code loads should be calculated


according to ASCE 7-02. Therefore, the gravity and lateral loads presented in
this report were calculated according to this standard.

LATERAL LOADS

Seismic and wind loads have been calculated for the structure in the North-South
and East-West direction. Hand calculations and spreadsheets used in
determining the loads can be seen in A.1 to A.6.

Wind Loads
Wind pressures were calculated for the main lateral force resisting systems in
each direction. The resultant wind pressures are represented in Figure 4. Figure
5 shows the story forces, which were determined using the tributary area of each
story.

Seismic Loads
Seismic loads were calculated according to the equivalent lateral force procedure.
Although the lateral force resisting systems differ in each direction, the response
modification factor is the same for both systems. Therefore, the seismic lateral
story forces are the same in each direction, as can be seen in Figure 6.
