SEISMIC GROUND MOTION AND LONG-PERIOD TRANSITION MAPS


Contained in this chapter are Figs. 22-1 through 22-20, which MCE Ground Motion, 5 percent damped spectral response accel-
provide the mapped Maximum Considered Earthquake (MCE) eration parameter at a period of 1 sec as defined in Section 11.4.1.
Ground Motion parameters Ss and S1 for use in applying the
These maps were developed by the United States Geological
seismic provisions of this standard. Ss is the mapped MCE Ground
Survey (USGS) and have been updated for the 2005 edition. The
