Reference for hazard level multipliers

Post by rajdeepsaharia »

In the target displacement module when Eurocode 8 part 3 is selected, and under seismic action tab in the other spectral shape when IS 1893: Part 1:2016 Indian Code is selected , a window appears for hazard level multiplier.
The default DL, SD, NC values are 0.78, 1 and 1.734 respectively. I have understood the significance of these values, but please let me know why only these specific values are taken, and what are the references for these values.

Dear rajdeepsaharia,

The default values of the Hazard Levels are according to the Codes. You may find the corresponding paragraph for Eurocodes in Section 2.1(4) of Eurocode 8-Part 1.
