Seismic classification

Post by ChrT »

We are using Seimsobuild 2022 and we noticed that the seismic classification does not account for the shear failure of the elements. For example, in our building case we have a shear failure of a column in SLV, however the failure is not considered at the pga ratio and the building results in a class A+. The model is also run after reinforcing the column with FRP and the seismic classification is identical to the previous one. Furthermore, we notice inconsistency in the calculations' report that we extracted. The table of life safety index (IS-V) is the same as the PAM classification table. In addition, in the calculations' report the additional longitudinal reinforcement at the start of the beams is not mentioned and instead it is written none.
Thank you for your help.

Regards,
CT

Dear ChrT,

Could you please check if you use the current release of SeismoBuild 2022, i.e. SeismoBuild 2022-Release 3-Build25? We checked the seismic classification and it seems to work properly. If you use the current version and you still get the reported error, please send us your file at z.gronti@seismosoft.com to check it.

As far as the Report is concerned, the error will be fixed in the upcoming release. Thank you for reporting it.

Dear ChrT,

There is a bug in the seismic risk classification when you select different from the default option in the material model in the member's modelling parameters. This bug will be fixed in the upcoming release. Thank you for reporting it. In the current release you may assign the default material model in member's modelling parameters. Please note that the default options in the member's modelling parameters are the options made in the Advanced Building Modelling tab, available in the Advanced Settings module.
