system = ( intermediate steel moment frame) at tranverse direction of the building and the longitu-
dinal direction is provided by Braced frame system = ordinary steel concentrically.

The building is assumed supported on spread footings based on moderately deep soft clay deposits

1.4.2 Redundancy Factors
For a structure in Seismic Design Category D refer to section 7.3.4.2 SNI 1726 2012 redudancy
faktor (), for Seismic Disign Categories D, shall equal 1,3
or Provission Eq. 5.2.4.2 defines the reliability factor () as :
= 2 20/(r
max
A
x
)
Where the roof area A
x =
sq.ft.
To cheking in an approximate manner. In the transverse direction , ther are (2 adjacent column /
(2x 24 bays) so :
r
max
= 2 adjacent column/(2 x 24 bays)
= 2/(2x24) = 0,042
= 1.06
In the longitudinal direction , the braces are equally loaded (ignoring accidental torsion), there is
(1 brace)/(4 x 6 brace) so
r
max
= (1 brace)/(4 x 6 brace)
= 0.042
= 1.06
Thus, the reliability multiplier is 1.06 in the transverse direction and 1.06 in the longitudinal direction
And the structure that are regular in plan at all direction.(tranverse and longitudinal direction).
[The redundancy requirements have been substantially changed in the 2003Provisions.For a building
assigned to Seismic Design Category D, = 1.0 as long as it can be shown that failure of beam-to-
column connections at both ends of a single beam (moment frame system)or failure of an individual
braced -frame system would not result in more than a 33 percent reduction in story strength or cre-
extreme torsional irregularity.Therefore, the redundancy factor would have to be investigated in
both directions based on the new criteria in the 2003 Provisions.]
1.4.3 Orthogonal Load Effect
A combination of 100 percent seismic forces in one direction plus 30 percent seismic forces in the
orthogonal direction must be applied to the structures in Seismic Design Category D (Provisi. Sec.
5.2.5.2.3 and 5.2.5.2.2 [4.4.2.3 and 4.4.2.2, respectively]).
1.4.4 Structural Component Load Effects
The effect of seismic load (Provisions Eq. 3.4.15 and Eq 3.4.16 MNBC 2012 is:
E = QE 0.2 S
DS
D.
Recall that SDS = 0,62 for this building.
The seismic load is combined with the gravity loads as follows:
1.2D + 1.0L + 0.2S + E = 1.2D +1.0L +QE + 0.2*0,62 D = 1.32 D + 1.0L + 0.2 S +QE.
0.9D + E = 0.9D + QE - 0.2*0,62 D = 0.776 D + QE.
1.4.5 Drift Limits
For a building in Seismic Use Group I, the allowable story drift as obtain from table 16 :
(SNI 1726 2012 Pasal 7.12.1 Tingkat Batas Simpangan) :)
261,563.0
a = 0.025 hsx.
1.5 Analysis
Because Seismic Design Category D and occupancy Category this building is I, One storeys for
purposes of determining seismic loads, is permitted to consider analysis prosedure selection " Equi-
valent Lateral Force Analysis" MNBC 2012 section 3.4.2.8 (MNBC 2012 Table 3.4.13)
"Permitted Analytical Procedures"
So base shear will be determined using an equivalent lateral force (ELF) analysis.
1.5.1 Period determination (SNI 1726 2012 section 7.8.2)
The fundamental period of the structure, T, in the direction under consideration shall be
established using the structural properties and deformational characteristics of the
resisting elements in a properly substantiated analysis. The fundamental period, T, shall
not exceed the product of the coefficient for upper limit on calculated period (Cu) from
Table 3.4.14 and the approximate fundamental period, Ta , determined from Eq. (3.4.26).
As an alternative to performing an analysis to determine the fundamental period, T, it is
permitted to use the approximate building period, Ta , calculated in accordance with
Section 3.4.2.8.2.1, directly.
1.5.3 Approximate fundamental period
The approximate fundamental period (Ta), in sec, shall be determined from the following
equation: SNI 1726 2012 section 7.8.2.1
Ta = Ct.hn
x
where hn is the height in ft above the base to the highest level of the structure and the
coefficients Ct and x are determined from SNI 1726 2012 Table 15
In the longitudinal direction where stiffness is provided only by the diagonal bracing, the approxi-
mate period is computing using provission SNI1726 2012 Eq. 7.8.2.1 refer Table 15
Ta = 0,0731*12^0,75 = 0.47131 sec
the computed period of the structure must not exeed :
Tmax= Cu.Ta = 0.65983 sec
(for SD1 = 0,58 by Table 14, Cu = 1,4)
In the Tranverse direction where stiffness is provided by steel moment-resisting frames
mate period is computing using provission SNI 1726 2012 Eq. 7.8.2.1 refer Table 15
Ta = 0,0724*12^0,8 = 0.52855 sec
in accordance with provission 3.4.2.8.2 , the computed period of the structure must not exeed :
Tmax= Cu.Ta = 0.73997 sec
(for SD1 = 0,58 by Table 14, Cu = 1,4)
1.5.4 Calculation of Seismic Response Coefficient
The seismic base shear, V, in a given direction shall be determined in accordance with
the following equation:
V = Cs W (SNI1726 2012 Eq. 61)
where
Cs = the seismic response coefficient determined in accordance with Section 7.8.1.1
W = the effective seismic weight per Section 7.7.2
The seismic response coefficient, Cs, shall be determined in accordance with Eq. (22).
Cs = SDs/(R/I) (SNI1726 2012 Eq. 22)
where
SDS = the design spectral response acceleration parameter in the short period range as
determined from SNI1726 2012 Section 8.8.1.
R = the response modification factor in SNI1726 2012 Table 9, 17, 20, 21
Tranverse direction:
Moment-resisting frame system = intermediate steel moment frame
R = 4.5
0 = 3 (SNI 1726 2012 table 9 )
Cd = 4
Cs Tranverse direction
Cs = SDs/(R/I) (SNI 1726 2012 Eq. 22)
= 0,62/(4,5/1)
= 0.138
The value of Cs computed in accordance with Eq. (23) need not exceed the following:
T = 0.529 detik
TL = 6 sec
Cs = SD1/(T(R/I)) for T TL (SNI1726 2012 Eq.23)
= 0,58/(0,529(4,5/1))
, = 0.244
Cs shall not be less than Cs =0.01
Therefore, use Cs = 0.138 for the tranverse direction.
Longitudinal direction:
Braced frame system = ordinary steel concentrically braced frame
R = 3,25
0 = 2,0 (SNI 1726 2012 table 9 )
Cd = 2,5
Cs Longitudinal direction
T = 0.471 detik
TL = 6 sec
Cs = SDs/(R/I) (SNI 1726 2012 Eq. 22)
= 0,62/(3,25/1)
= 0.191
The value of Cs computed in accordance with Eq. (3.4.21) need not exceed the following:
Cs = SD1/(T(R/I)) for T TL (SNI 1726 2012 Eq. 23)
= 0,58/(0,471(3,25/1))
, = 0.379
Cs shall not be less than Cs =0.01
Therefore, use Cs = 0.191 for the longitudinal direction.
Cs shall not be less than Cs =0.01 (SNI1726 2012 Eq. 24)
1.5.5 Seismic Base Shear (V)
The seismic base shear, V, in a given direction shall be determined in accordance with
the following equation:
V = Cs W (SNI1726 2012 Eq. 61)
where
Cs = the seismic response coefficient determined in accordance with Section 7.8.1.1
W = the effective seismic weight per Section 7.7.2

The seismic force must be increased by the reliability factor as indicated previously. Wi
Athough this is not applicable to the determination of deflections, it is applicable in the determina- k
tion of required strengths.
The reliability multiplier ( ) will enter the calculation later as the modal analysis is developed. If the
ELF method was used exclusively, the seismic base shear in the longitudinal direction would be

The seismic base shear in the longitudinal direction is: Cs = 0.177 , R = 3.5
V = CsW = kg
The seismic force must be increased by the reliability factor as indicated previously.
Athough this is not applicable to the determination of deflections, it is applicable in the determina-
tion of required strengths.
The reliability multiplier ( ) will enter the calculation later as the modal analysis is developed. If the
ELF method was used exclusively, the seismic base shear in the longitudinal direction would be
increased by now:
Modification factor tranverse direction = 0.85 *(103,908/104,076) = 0.85
Modification factor longitudinal direction = 0.85 *(143,873/133,596) = 0.97
for = 1.06 Tranverse direction
V = 0.85 x = kg
for = 1.06 Longitudinal direction
V = 0.97 x = kg
Finally, The design respons spectra for 3-D modal analysis is again revising by the new seismic -
base shear in tranverse direction and longitudinal direction . The model is run once again to obtain
the final result for design forces : axial forces, Torsional moments, shears, and moments .
1.5.8 Drift
The lateral deflection cited previously must be multiplied by Cd = 4 to find the transverse drift:
The maximum lateral displacements at the ridge due to seismic loads (design response spectra as
increased by the modification factors above) from the second analysis are:
Tranverse direction deflection xe = 3.85 cm
Longitudinal direction deflection ye = 0.57 cm
xe = Cd. xe/I = 4 x 15.4
ye = Cd. xe/I = 2.5 x 1.4
Refering 1.4.5 Drift Limit : For building in seismic Use Group I, the allowable story drift is:
a = 0.025 hsx
= 60 cm , hsx = 1200 cm
This drift condition not exceeds the limit of 60 cm. . However, there is no story drift limit for singlestory
structures with interior wall, partitions, ceilings, and exterior wall systems that have been designed

to accommodate the story drifts. (The heavy wall panels were selected to make an interesting example
problem, and the high transverse drift is a consequence of this. Some real buildings, such as refrigerated
warehouses, have heavy wall panels and would be expected to have high seismic drifts. Special attention
to detailing the connections of such features is necessary.)
In the longitudinal direction, the lateral deflection was much smaller and obviously is within the limits.
Recall that the deflection computations do not consider the reliability factor. This value must be
multiplied by a Cd factor to find the transverse drift. The tabulated value of Cd is 4.5, but this is for use
when design is based upon R = 5. The Provisions does not give guidance for Cd when the system R factor
is overridden by the limitation of Provisions Sec. 5.2.2.1 [4.3.1.2]. The authors suggest adjusting by a
ratio of R factors.
5.1.4.4 P-delta
The AISC LRFD Specification requires P-delta analyses for frames. This was investigated by a 3-D Pdelta
analysis, which determined that secondary P-delta effect on the frame in the transverse direction was
less than 1 percent of the primary demand. As such, for this example, P-delta was considered to be
insignificant and was not investigated further. (P-delta may be significant for a different structure, say
one with higher mass at the roof. P-delta should always be investigated for unbraced frames.)
3.4.2.12.2 Diaphragm deflection
The deflection in the plane of the diaphragm, as determined by engineering analysis, shall
not exceed the permissible deflection of the attached elements. Permissible deflection
shall be that deflection that will permit the attached element to maintain its structural
integrity under the individual loading and continue to support the prescribed loads.
