PURPOSE AND SCOPE.

These Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) provide technical guidance for the earthquakeresistant ("seismic") design of new buildings, and nonstructural systems and components in those buildings, for the Department of Defense (DoD), based on an adaptation of the 2009 Edition of the International Building Code (2009 IBC) and the structural standard referenced by it: ASCE 7-05 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures. The criteria further provide limited technical guidance for seismic evaluation and strengthening of existing buildings. This information shall be used by structural engineers to develop design calculations, specifications, plans, and Design- Build Requests for Proposals (RFPs), and it shall serve as the minimum seismic design requirement for DoD buildings.
