26.9.5 Flexible or Dynamically Sensitive Buildings or Other Structures For flexible or dynamically sensitive buildings or other structures as defined in Section 26.2, the gust-effect factor shall be calculated by G I g Q g R g I f z Q R v z = + + + 0 925 1 1 7 1 1 7 2 2 2 2 . . . (26.9-10) g Q and g v shall be taken as 3.4 and g R is given by g n n R = ( ) + ( ) 2 3 600 0 577 2 3 600 1 1 ln , . ln , (26.9-11) R , the resonant response factor, is given by R R R R R n h B L = + ( ) 1 0 53 0 47 β . .

MINIMUM DESIGN LOADS 257 1. Within 1 mi of the coastal mean high water line where the basic wind speed is equal to or greater than 130 mi/h (58 m/s), or 2. In areas where the basic wind speed is equal to or greater than 140 mi/h (63 m/s). For Risk Category II buildings and other structures and Risk Category III buildings and other structures, except health care facilities, the wind-borne debris region shall be based on Fig. 26.5-1A. For Risk Category III health care facilities and Risk Category IV buildings and other structures, the wind-borne debris region shall be based on Fig. 26.5-1B. Risk Categories shall be determined in accordance with Section 1.5.
