Abstract

The evaluation of seismic forces is very important for the design of all types of structures. In the present, Republic of Moldova is in a period of transition in the construction industry from the national design norms to the European design norms. The comparison provides an interesting and imperative approach in design of structures. During the design process it is very important to be aware of all the forces acting on a structure, especially the accidental forces. This paper presents a comprehensive analysis of a concrete frame structure, subjected to seismic action. A calculation is performed according to the current national design code SNiP II-7-81 and according to Eurocode 8. The purpose of the paper is the quantitative comparison of the values of the seismic forces and the qualitative evaluation of the factors that influence these forces.
