This new national consensus standard was developed from the FEMA , Prestandard and Commentary for the Seismic Rehabilitation of Buildings, which served as a starting point for the formal standard development process. It includes significant improvements in current understanding of building behavior in earthquakes, such as Improved C-coefficients for calculation of the pseudo-lateral force and target displacement based on recommendations in FEMA ; Comprehensive soil-structure interaction provisions including kinematic effects and foundation damping effects; Revised acceptance criteria for steel moment frames to reflect final conclusions of the SAC Joint Venture research; Expanded acceptance criteria for concentrically braced frames defined as a function of brace slenderness, compactness and level of connection detailing; and Updated nonstructural provisions to be consistent with current NEHRP Provisions for new buildings. The completion of the new Standard represents a considerable advancement for the engineering community.
