Overview

Seismic actions are considered in the National Construction Code under the design and construction requirements for buildings and structures. The European code is often relied on due to the sharing of the metric system, fasteners are evaluated for their performance under two seismic categories C1 and C2. 

Performance category C1 - tests fasteners under pulsating tension load and alternating shear load while taking into account the effect of concrete cracking. 

Performance category C2 – considers fastener reference tests to failure as well as tests under pulsating tension load and alternating shear load while taking into account the effect of concrete cracking
