Seismic Design Code/Standard

  1. Sep 8, 2011 #1
    Hi

    I am looking for a "Western" seismic analysis design code? So something by BS, ISO, API, etc...

    If there is one specific to the oil & gas industry and subsea strucutures, then great, but as this may not be available, any code on structural seismic design would do.

    I essentially need to check which seismicity level below which analysis is not really needed - I think its above MSK VII but need confirmation...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

    Adnan

    Look at 2003 IBC and 1997 UBC.
