A uniform pressure of 115k/27.6 sf = 4.17 ksf should be used to determine the internal forces of the footing. (Note that if the footing also resisted moments, the pressure would not be uniform.) The other seismic load combination is

Note that this indicates uplift will occur. ASCE/SEI 7-05 does not require that foundation stability be maintained using strength-level seismic forces. This combination is only used here to determine internal forces of concrete elements of the foundat ion. As it results in no internal forces, it may be neglected.

Separation within the same building

Expansion joints are often used to break a large building or an irregular building into two or more parts above the foundation level. This effectively creates separate structures within the same building. The code requires that the structures be separated by the amount OMf where

The required separation is determined in the following two steps.



Determine ine lastic displacements of each structure To determine the min imum separation between parts of the same building that are separated by an expansion joint, the maximum inelastic floor disp lacements 6" must be determined for each structure. These are at level, x= 2 For Structure I

Separation from an adjacent building on the same property
If Structures I and 2 above are adjacent, individual buildings on the same property, the solution is the same as that shown above in Step I . The code makes no distinction betw een an "internal" separation in the sam e building and the separation required betw een two adjacent buildings on the same property.

Example 4 9 • Building Separations


~ Separation from an adjacent building on another property

If Struc ture I is a building under design and Structure 2 is an existing bu ilding on an adjoining property, we would ge nera lly not have information about the seismic displacem ents of Structu re 2. Often even basic information about the struc tura l sys tem of Struc ture 2 may no t be known. In this case, separa tion must be based on ly on info rmation about Struc ture I. The larges t elastic displ acement of Struc ture I is 0)<= 1.38 inch es and occurs at the roof (Level 3). Th e maximum inelastic displacement is calculated as 0 ,/ = CdO J , = 5.5(1.38) = 7.59 in r I 1.0 (Eq 12.8-15)


Structure I must be set back 7.59 inches from the property line, unless a sma ller separation is justifie d by a rati onal analys is ba sed on maximum ground motion s. Such an analys is is difficul t to perform, and is ge nerally not requ ired except in very special cases.
