dc.description.abstractThis report represents part of the 1994 effort to update the provisions of the 1991 National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP). The 1991 seismic design formulas for nonstructural components are critically reviewed and improvements are recommended based on analyses and experiment. The improvements preserve the equivalent lateral force format for design applicability and correct some of the deficiencies. Three recommendations are proposed and the maximum and minimum design forces in the three recommendations are compared with those produced by the 1991 NEHRP provisions, the 1991 Uniform Building Code (UBC), and the 1985 Tri-Services Code. Case studies of a parapet, a storage rack, and equipment attached to a reinforced concrete shear wall are provided to show the relative conservatism involved in different codes and the importance of the factors ignored in the current provisions.<BR>en_US
