Conventional Construction is the norm in regions of low seismicity. However, earthquake loads need to be checked and compared to other lateral loads (particularly wind) to establish the governing load cases. The design method and design forces are also influenced by the building period, by geometric irregularities and by poor soil conditions. This webinar will introduce to the participant, the methodology of determining earthquake loads and design considerations based on the NBCC 2015 and CSA S16-14 as they relate to regions of low seismicity.
