AbstractThe National Building Code of Canada 1985 has modified the seismic provisions relative to the 1980 Edition. In Japan, the new aseismic design method has been in force since 1981. This paper compares both codes considering the main factors involved in the seismic load calculation and points out some problems yet to be solved. Finally, research subjects are suggested.
