Description / Abstract:

This Guide provides rationale for elevator seismic force determination in Section 8.4. It details ASME A17.1 harmonization efforts with all building codes and summarizes the harmonization impact on elevator design via force comparisons based on component, component mounting location, and building geographical location, and provides an International Building Code (IBC) quick reference for seismic requirements and equivalent zone force levels.
