Abstract: Earthquake design coefficients of many building codes are insufficient for certain types of structures, particularly for industrial and other, more specialized types; set of curves is presented which show design coefficients as function of rigidity of structures; coefficients are based on modified response spectra on one-mass systems obtained by dynamic analysis.
