inspection of the building. The applicable FEMA 310 Model Building Type is determined from
the description of structural systems given in FEMA 310, Table 2-2. It should be noted that the
two dormitory wings have different structural systems in each of the two orthogonal directions.
c. Structural Review Score Sheets (Figures C1-4, C1-6 and C1-8). This form should be
completed at the building site using the information entered on the Lateral Load System Data
Sheet, and confirmed by visual observation of the building. Note that a +1 has been assigned
to the "Details" line for the shear wall system because each shear wall has only a small door
opening. A zero has been assigned to the concrete frame systems since the details are typical
of nonductile concrete frames. The final scores for the various wings range from -0.2 to 2.9, as
shown on the score sheets.
The final scores for the structurally separated building wings can then be ranked with other
installation building scores to compare the relative seismic vulnerability of all nonexempt
buildings at the installation. The procedures for seismic vulnerability ranking of buildings and
preparation of the Installation Report that summarizes the seismic review findings are described
in appendix D.
