What is the response coefficient?

The response modification coefficient (R) is used to calculate the reduced design seismic forces of a structural system, and the deflection amplification factor (Cd) to convert elastic lateral displacements to total lateral displacements.

FAQ

What is seismic response coefficient when base shear is given?
The seismic response coefficient when base shear is given formula calculates the seismic response coefficient when we have a prior info of the total dead load and is represented as Cs=V/W or seismic response coefficient=lateral force/total dead load. lateral force are live loads that are applied parallel to the ground; that is, they are horizontal forces acting on a structure and total dead load is permanent load which result from the weight of the structure itself.
How to calculate seismic response coefficient when base shear is given?
The seismic response coefficient when base shear is given formula calculates the seismic response coefficient when we have a prior info of the total dead load is calculated using seismic response coefficient=lateral force/total dead load. To calculate seismic response coefficient when base shear is given, you need lateral force (V) and total dead load (W). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for lateral force and total dead load and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
How many ways are there to calculate seismic response coefficient?
In this formula, seismic response coefficient uses lateral force and total dead load. We can use 2 other way(s) to calculate the same, which is/are as follows -
  • seismic response coefficient=1.2*seismic coefficient for short period structures/(response modification factor*fundamental period^(2/3))
  • seismic response coefficient=2.5*seismic coefficient for velocity dependent/response modification factor
