A new draft code for seismic design of buildings in Indonesia

  • I. A. N. Fraser Beca Carter Hollings & Ferner Ltd., Wellington, New Zealand

Abstract

The paper describes a new loading code for Indonesia developed under the aegis of the New Zealand Bilateral Aid Programme to Indonesia by the executing consultants, under the direction of a NZ Steering Committee and Indonesian Counterpart Team.

The paper summarizes the method of zoning, determining lateral load levels, and the assessment of factors relevant to the design loading code such as risk, ground condition, structural types, ductility and the development of the concept of dual documents namely:

(a)  a code for use as the bylaw and for more complex structures, and 


(b)  a manual as a means of compliance with the code for easier design of straightforward buildings complying with one of a 
number of well defined structural types.
