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.

The result shows that the deformed slope is slightly stable under natural condition but is unstable in rainstorm condition and under seismic load.
The seismic load used was a spectrum consistent ground acceleration generated from El Centro 18 May 1940 North-South component in accordance to the new code (2500 year return period).
Based on the results of this study, it can be concluded that the bracing damper system proposed herein can be used more effectively with respect to the resistance strength under a seismic load with a fast loading speed rather than a slow static load.
This paper proposes a new analytical algorithm for the interaction between the bolt and rock considering shear damage on the anchoring interface under a seismic load based on the bearing mechanism of fully grouted rock bolts in underground caverns.
It can be considered that the cracks or even the collapse occurred under the seismic load because of the difference in deformation.
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 structure must also satisfy wind and seismic load requirements, which Kreysler did through finite element analysis.
Seismic potential post-Aceh earthquake may need to be re-evaluated for input to the current seismic load. Existence of Sumatra Fault Zone (SFZ) that passes to the city increases the concern of imminent future big earthquake originated from this SFZ rather than from the subduction source.
