1615.2.2 Deterministic Limit on Maximum Consideredearthquake Ground Motion
JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
The deterministic limit for the maximum considered earthquake ground motion shall be the response spectrum determined in accordance with Figure 1615.2.2, where site coefficients, Fa and Fv, are determined in accordance with Section 1615.1.2, with the value of the mapped short-period spectral response acceleration, SS, taken as 1.5g and the value of the mapped spectral response acceleration at 1 second, S1, taken as 0.6g.
