# SEISMIC ANALYSIS

The philippines falls within one of the most active earthquake zones in the world. In fact, it
straddles the so-called Circum-Pacific Belt which extends from the Aleutian islands in the Northern hemi-
sphere to Australia in the Sourthern Hemisphere. In these areas, it is necessary to consider seismic forces
in the design of buildings, bridges and other structures.
An earthquake causes an acceleration of the ground surfaces. This acceleration has both
vertical and horizontal components. The vertical component is usually assumed to be negligible, but the
horizontal component is the one that can cause considerable damage and destruction. Hence seismic
forces may come from any horizontal direction.

## The total design base shear ( VStatic ), Shall be determined

from the following formula:

## Eq. 1 VStatic = (Cv) (I) (WT) / (R)(T)

Eq. 2 VStatic = 2.5 (Ca) (I) (WT) / R
Eq. 3 VStatic = 0.11 (Ca) (I) (WT)
Eq. 4 VStatic = 0.8 (Z) (Nv) (I) (WT) / R
Note:
The total Design Base shear Eq.1 shall not exceed result from Eq.2 and shall not be less than from
the result of Eq.3.
For Seismic zone 4, the Total Base shear Eq.1 shall not be less than the result from Eq.4

T = Ct (HN)3/4

## Where: Ct = 0.0853 for steel moment resisting space frame

= 0.0731 for reinforced concrete moment resisting frames.
= 0.050 for all other structures.
HN = Height of structures in meters, above the base to level n.

## VERTICAL DISTRIBUTION OF FORCES

The total force shall be distributed over the height of the structure using the following formula in
the absence of a more rigorous procedure;
n
V = Ft + Σ Fi
i=1
The concentrated forces Ft, at the top, which is in addition to Fn, shall be determined from the
formula;
Ft = 0.070 TV
The value of T used for the purpose of calculating Ft maybe the period that corresponds with the
design base shear as computed. Ft need not exceed 0.25V and maybe considered as zero where T is 0.70
second or less. The remaining portion of the base shear shall be distributed over the height of the structure
including the level n, according to the following equation.

Fx = ( V – Ft ) Wx hx
n
Σ Wi hi
i=1
At each level designated as n, the force Fx , shall be applied over the area of the building in
occurrence with the mass distribution at that level. Stresses in each structural element shall be computed as
the effect of forces Fx and Ft applied at the appropriate level n above the base.

## Shear shall be distributed as follows:

a. The design storey shear , Vx , in any storey is the sum of the forces Fx and Ft above that
storey. Vx shall be distributed to the various elements of the vertical lateral force resisting
system in proportion to their stiffness of the diaphragm.
b. To account for the uncertainties on locations of loads, the mass of each level shall be assumed
to be displaced from the calculated center of mass in each direction a distance equal to 5% of
the building dimension at that level perpendicular to the direction of the force under
consideration. The effect of this displacement on the storey shear distribution shall be
considered.
