NBCC2015 Seismic Design Examples for Structural Engineers

The NBCC2015 Seismic Design Examples document contains structural models designed to illustrate and guide users who want to better understand both seismic or dynamic analysis and design and how S-FRAME Analysis is used to generate results for this type of analysis.

Examples in this document demonstrate the NBCC2015 seismic provisions application to a seismic analysis in S-FRAME, with a focus on the Equivalent Static Force Procedure (ESFP) and Response Spectrum Analysis (RSA).
