AD.2007-06.2.4 Chinese Static Seismic Loading

A simplified base shear method of the seismic load generation for the Chinese GB50011-2001 code has been added to STAAD.Pro V8i.

This set of commands may be used to define and generate static equivalent seismic loads as per Chinese specifications GB50011-2001. This load uses a static equivalent approach, similar to that found in the UBC. Depending on this definition, equivalent lateral loads will be generated in the horizontal direction(s).
