A structural system with bearing walls providing
support for all or major portions of the vertical loads.
Shear walls or braced frames provide seismic-force
Bearing Wall
A structural system with an essentially complete
space frame providing support for vertical loads.
Seismic-force resistance is provided by shear walls or
braced frames.
Building Frame
A building frame system is a system in which the
gravity loads are carried primarily by a frame
Building Frame supported on columns rather than by bearing walls.
Some minor portions of the gravity load may be carried
Systems on bearing walls, but the amount so carried should not
represent more than a few percent of the building area.
The horizontal beams and vertical columns provide both
support for the structures weight and the strength and
stiffness needed to resist lateral loads.
Moment Stiffness and strength are achieved through the use of rigid
Resisting connections between the beams and columns that prevent
these elements from rotating relative to one other.
Frame System
They do not required braced frames or structural walls,
therefore large open spaced and facades with many
unobstructed window openings
Ordinary Moment-Resisting frame (OMRF)
A frame not meeting special detailing requirements for ductile
Types of MRFs These provide the least resistance to lateral motion and so are only
recommended for zero/low seismic regions.
Intermediate Moment Resisting Frame (IMRF)
A frame designed in accordance with section 412 (concrete-
IMFs are the next level up, designed to resist limited inelastic
deformations as the result of lateral forces.
Special Moment-Resisting Frames (SMRF)
moment resisting frame specially detailed to provide ductile
A structural system with an essentially complete space frame

resistance is provided by a moment frame and shear walls or
braced frames. (SMRF, MRWF or steel OMRF)

the interaction of the dual system at all levels.
Dual Systems A structural system with an essentially complete space frame

System If combinations of structural systems are
incorporated into the same structure, the
requirements of the following sections
must be satisfied!
Combinations The value of R used in the design of every
storey shall be less than or equal to the
value of R used in the given direction for
the storey above!
Combinations Exception: This requirement need not to be
applied to a storey where the dead weight
above that storey is less than 10 percent of
the total dead weight of the structure.
The entire structure is designed using the

axis one direction, R used in orthogonal section

same axis Value of R used in that direction shall not be
greater than the least value for any of the
