List of international earthquake acceleration coefficients
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (June 2008)|
List of international earthquake acceleration coefficients. A list of earthquake coefficients used in structural design for earthquake engineering around the world. For example, a coefficient of 0.09 indicates that a building is designed that 0.09 of its weight can be applied horizontally during an earthquake.[clarification needed]
From Australian Standard 1170.4. Coeffiecients are based on 10% chance exceedence in 50 years.
Note: Meckering, Western Australia, has the largest coefficient in Australia of 0.22.
From ΕAΚ 2003 building code
- Zone 1 = 0.16g (Thrace and most of Northern Greece, Parts of Athens and Parts of Thessaloniki)
- Zone 2 = 0.24g (Parts of Athens and Parts of Thessaloniki)
- Zone 3 = 0.36g (Zakynthos Island, Cephalonia Island)
- Canada uses Spectral acceleration
