b. Lateral Load System Data Sheet (Figure C4-2). This form is completed in accordance
with the instructions contained in Appendix B. The building is categorized as FEMA Building
Type 5, based on the description of structural systems given in FEMA 310, Table 2-2. Based on
the information obtained from topographic maps and logs of soil profiles, the site is assigned
Soil Profile Type SD.
c. Structural Review Score Sheet (Figure C4-3). This form is completed using the
information obtained from drawings and confirmed by visual observation of the building.
The building is rectangular in plan. There is a firewall on the east side of the building that is not
expected to contribute to the overall building stiffness because the wall is connected to the
framing with clips, which do not transfer lateral forces. Therefore, no reduction is taken for
The basic score for Model Building Type 5 is 5.5. With the -0.6 reduction for Soil Type SD, the
final score is 4.9.
C4-3. Installation Report
The final score for the building 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.
