COMPARISON OF SEISMIC IMPACTS THROUGH DIFFERENT REGULATIONS
This paper presents the basic principles of seismic analysis of structures according to the YU81 and
European norm EN 1998-1: 2004. The aim of the paper is a critical review of comparative analysis
of seismic impacts in the design of building structures according to these standards. EC8 involves
several innovative approaches for the design and construction of structures, such as no structural
failure, limiting the degree of structural damage, important public use facilities must remain usable.
Purpose of this research is to compare the value of seismic force according to YU81 and EC8, for
the same type of structure, depending on the parameters variation, such as different soil categories,
different seismicity class, different building structural systems.
