Purpose and Scope.

This document is intended to provide qualified designers with the necessary criteria and guidance for the performance-based seismic analysis and design of new military buildings, and the nonstructural systems and components in the buildings.

Applicability.

a. General. The criteria in this document are applicable to all elements responsible for the design of military construction in the United States and its territories and possessions. The procedures in this document may be used to verify the performance objectives of any new construction.

b. Nonapplicability. Non-building structures and hazardous critical facilities (e.g., nuclear power plants, piers, wharves, dams, and liquefied gas facilities) are not within the scope of this document.

c. Design Team. When use of this document is required, the selected design team will include an engineer knowledgeable in seismic design. That engineer will be included in the facility planning process from the beginning to provide guidance in the selection of the appropriate seismic resisting system. Early input and a special peer review team are required when seismic isolation or energy dissipation devices are a potential alternative.
