Abstract
Along with the accumulation of earthquake damage experience and researches on earthquake, the standard of building seismic design is modified all the time to be more objectively and scientifically. The soil-structure interaction method is significant but still qualitative, so a detailed comparison between Chinese Mainland code and Taiwanese code was carried out, including application scope, reduction method of earthquake action, and the change of reduction factor with height. Analysis results show that Chinese code method need to be improved following: 1) provide the structure type which should be considered soil-structure interaction effect clearly; 2) select structural period and damping ratio as variables to consider the influence of SSI to seismic force and give a specific value for reference; 3) consider the second-order effect of SSI and give modified lateral displacement of the structure.
