Description / Abstract:

This Standard, NZS 1170.5, sets out procedures and criteria for establishing the earthquake actions to be used in the limit state design of structures and parts of structures within New Zealand that are within the scope of AS/NZS 1170.0.

The design of the following structures for earthquake actions is outside the scope of this Standard:

(a) Bridges.

(b) Tanks containing liquids.

(c) Civil structures including dams and bunds.

(d) Offshore structures that are partly or fully immersed.

(e) Soil retaining structures.

This Standard does not address the effects of slope instability, liquefaction, fault displacement, seiche and/or tsunami resulting from earthquake shaking.

This Standard is to be used in conjunction with material specific structural design Standards that comply with the requirements of Appendix D. Such a Standard is referred to here as an appropriate material Standard.
