Seismic Zone Map of the Philippines .

40 13 . there are 5 seismic zones.20 Zone 4 .low seismic risk Zone 2 .moderate earthquakes Z = 0. SEISMIC ZONES Under UBC and SEAOC.high seismic risk The Philippines has two (2) seismic zones (corresponding to UBC) : Zone 2 . 4 .major earthquakes Z = 0.moderate seismic risk Zone 3. zone 0 through 4 Zone 0. 1 .

therefore the special seismic design provisions of the codes apply to the design and detailing of building structures in this area. Philippines : A High-Seismic Risk Area The seismicity data of the Philippines show that it is predominantly a high-seismic risk country. 14 .

18 . STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS CLASSIFICATION  BUILDING FRAME SYSTEM Has separate systems to provide support for lateral forces and gravity loads. A frame provide support for essentially all gravity loads with independent shear walls or braced frames ` resisting all lateral forces.

Special Moment Resisting Frame (SMRF) 19 . the moment resisting frames are required to be specially detailed per UBC. In seismic zones 3 and 4. STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS CLASSIFICATION  MOMENT– RESISTING FRAMES provide ductility and support for both lateral and gravity loads by flexural action.

STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS CLASSIFICATION  DUAL SYSTEM Shear walls or braced frames supply the primary lateral support system with a special moment-resisting frame (SMRF) providing primary support for gravity loads and acting as a backup lateral force system. 20 .

Thus. DUCTILITY It is generally uneconomical and unnecessary to design a structure to respond in the elastic range to the maximum earthquake-induced inertia forces. 34 . The underlying philosophy behind the Code special provision for seismic design is that structures are designed so that they will behave in a ductile manner during major earthquakes. the code design seismic forces are generally less than the elastic response inertia forces induced by the design earthquake.

Moderate earthquakes with negligible structural and non-structural damages . not property values 36 .Major earthquakes without collapse and with possibly some structural and non-structural damages Yielding of some structural members under moderate to high earthquake is acceptable The Code’s foremost goal is to protect human lives. SEISMIC DESIGN PHILOSOPHY An earthquake-resistant structure (ERS) should be able to resist: .Minor earthquakes without any damage .

KEY CONSIDERATIONS IN ERS • Structural Systems – Selection and laying out of lateral-force-resistant system appropriate to the anticipated level of ground shaking – Continuous and redundant load path – Minimum possible irregularities • Modeling and Analysis – Determining design earthquake loads – Mathematical modeling to represent structure – Finding forces and deformations due to earthquake • Design and Detailing – Proportioning of members for combined effect of gravity and EQ loads – Adequate vertical & lateral stiffness and – Detailing to achieve the desired ductility 37 .

44 . DYNAMIC LATERAL FORCE PROCEDURE Dynamic analysis procedures are considered to provide a somewhat improved or more accurate force distribution. There are two methods of dynamic analysis : • Response Spectrum Analysis • Time History Analysis The response spectrum method is the recommended dynamic analysis approach in the Philippines because we have no recorded earthquake data yet as input ground motion for time history analysis.

Overview of Seismic Detailing Key Principles: – Structure will undergo fairly large deformation under design earthquake – Yielding of some member is expected/allowed – Several cycles of loading into inelastic range – Structure should survive without loss of vertical load carrying capacity 53 .

the required strength consists of the service level loads multiplied by the appropriate load factors specified in UBC Section 1909. The design strength of a member consists of the theoretical ultimate strength.70 for compression members with lateral ties 54 .

As shown in the figure. the column design shear need not exceed the value determined from the probable moment strengths of the beams framing into the top and bottom of the column. When the factored compressive force in a member is less than Agfc’/20 and the seismic induced shear is not less than half of the total design shear. Shear reinforcement shall then be provided to resist the total design shear as required by UBC Section 1921.3. the maximum probable moments are assumed to occur under the maximum axial load of 0. the shear resistance of the concrete Vc shall be neglected.

assure life safety.  The dynamic seismic analysis is the preferred procedure for lateral load analysis to obtain more accurate structural responses particularly for structures with irregularities. so such should be minimized.  The recommended structural systems for RC buildings in our country are SMRF and Dual systems.  Structures with irregularities perform poorly during earthquakes.  Our buildings must satisfy the seismic design provisions for high-seismic demand level. CONCLUSION  The Philippines is a high-seismic risk region. and thus. 104 .  The code’s intent is that structures must have sufficient strength and ductility to prevent collapse under the most intense earthquake (design level).
