Remarks

・rmax：『the maximum element-storey shear ratio. For a given direction of loading, the element-storey shear ratio is the ratio of the design storey shear in the most heavily loaded single element divided by the total design storey shear. For any given Storey Level i, the element-storey shear ratio is denoted as ri. The maximum element-storey shear ratio rmax is defined as the largest of the element storey shear ratios, ri, which occurs in any of the storey levels at or below the two-thirds height level of the building.』(Reference[1])
・AB：『Ground floor area of structure in square meter (ft2) to include area covered by all overhangs and projections.』(Reference[1])
