Seismic load

seismic load

[¦sīz·mik ′lōd]
(engineering)
The force on a structure caused by acceleration induced on its mass by an earthquake.

Seismic load

The design load for potential seismic forces acting on a building during an earthquake that is used to determine the extent of seismic reinforcing.

seismic load

The force produced on a structural mass owing to its acceleration, induced by an earthquake.

Total Seismic load and the governed vertical loads on columns have been obtained following the linear static analysis.
This paper aims to present research directed towards numerically estimating the possible effect of a seismic load (earthquake) on a wind turbine structural system that has undergone fatigue over time from constant exposure to wind forces.
It features a dual seismic system that is more commonly used in taller buildings, consisting of buckling restrained braced frames, which absorb 75 to 90 percent of the structure's seismic load, and special moment frames, whose reduced beam sections help minimize seismic demand on the columns.

The verification of the criterion of stability of mining openings under seismic load, elaborated for rock bursts (events causing some damage to the excavations) that occurred in 1988-2006 in the USCB (Mutke, 2007 and 2008), was performed for rock bursts phenomena that occurred in Polish Coal Company mines from 2003 till 2012 (Fig.
