S Scope

This chapter covers the general rules for the seismic design of buildings using the structural Clause 4.1.1 materials encompassed by the Eurocodes. Accordingly, it deals essentially with the general conception of structures for buildings and its modelling and analysis for the purpose of checking the general requirements set forth in Section 2 of EN 1998-1.

This chapter loosely follows the contents of Section 4 of EN 1998-1, but does not elaborate on all clauses of that section; neither does it strictly follow the sequence of clauses.
