Topic: Height of piers and seismic verification condition
could you please answer me the following 2 questions:
- why is the seismic verification for ULS preformed through the check d(n)>=pd*dtULS. Is this according to EC? In EC I cannot find any additional parameter pd=1,5.
- which height of piers is taken into account for the seismic analysis. For example, if I have a pier situated between 2 windows, is the height of the pier reduced or is its height taken as the elevation height?
