Larsen Engineering maintains familiarity with the ever-changing standards of seismic analysis and design primarily through its association with the Structural Engineering Association of Northern California. Structures are subject to permanent “dead” weight of the structure, temporary “live” load of contents and occupants, and lateral loads from wind or earthquake (seismic) forces.
Structural elements must be designed so that as a system, the structure can resist all loads. We provide seismic analysis and design for new construction and seismic retrofits for existing structures. Typical seismic features are: fastening of structure to foundation, plywood shear walls or welded steel bracing frames for stability, and many types of steel rods, anchors and straps that couple strength with ductility.
