Question #03. When the over-turning moment increases faster than the restoring moment from the frame stiffness, the frame is considered to be, A. stable B. unstable C. X-braced D. a thick shear wall
Answer to #03. B. Structures should be designed to resist the overturning effects caused by seismic loading. When the overturning moment increases faster than the restoring moment from the frame stiffness, the frame is unstable . CBC Section 1630.8.1 states the overturning effects on every element should be transferred to the foundation.
