Uniform Risk Coefficients for Certain Caribbean Territories
The table provided here is an extract from Clarke R. 2019. “Computation of Risk Coefficients (CRS, CR1) for Obtaining Risk-Targeted Earthquake Hazard Values for Several Caribbean Territories”, The West Indian Journal of Engineering, Vol.42, No.1, July 2019, pp.4-11. The intention is to be used by civil and structural engineers to convert The UWI SRC uniform hazard maps for the Lesser Antilles to uniform risk maps, and consequently to be used by engineers in order to properly apply the building codes of the United States of America that were published since 2009 – the ASCE/SEI 7 and the IBC, and their reference documents.
