For a 10 story RC frame office building ( 100 ft by 100 ft footprint) located in downtwon Philadelphia :

       a- Determine the lateral wind pressure (external) along the height of the building. Building Cateogry II, wind expeosure category B. Basic wind speed V= 90 m/h

       b- Determine the lateral seismic loadalong the height of the building using the equivalent lateral load procedure. Sc = 0.3g. Silt soil type.

       c- Determine whether wind or earthquake load will govern the design.

Data : Floor height = 12 ft.

       Floor/roof slab thickness = 7 in.

       Superimposed dead loads ( flooring and false ceiling = 15 psf)
