Notes:

• This method works for Buildings (ASCE 7-05 Chapter 12) and Non-Building Structures (ASCE 7-05 Chapter 15) • If checking Non-Building Structures not similar to buildings (Table 15.4-2) CS-min will change • This spreadsheet was made using the ASCE 7-05 This spreadsheet is provided by www.wikiengineer.com The newest available version of this spreadsheet can be found at: http://www.wikiengineer.com/Structural/SeismicBuildingDesignSpreadsheet
