AS 1170.4-1993 Minimum design loads on structures (known as the SAA Loading Code) - Earthquake loads

Abbreviation
AS 1170.4-1993
Valid from
16/08/1993

Information provider
SAI Global
Information type
Australian Standard
Format
PDF, Hard copy


Description

This Standard sets out data and procedures for determining minimum earthquake loads on structures and their components, and also minimum detailing requirements for structures.

The Standard is in limit states format.

New earthquake maps are defined in terms of an acceleration coefficient instead of the zoning system used in the previous Standard AS 2121. Domestic structures are now included.

Scope

This Standard does not consider related phenomena such as settlement, slides, subsidence, liquefaction or faulting in the immediate vicinity of a structure. 

It is intended to apply to structures, particularly buildings, non-building structures, fixings and non-structural components including building services and architectural elements.

Special structures including nuclear reactors, dams, transmission towers, bridges, piers and wharves may require special considerations, and are not covered by this Standard.
