It is recommended that the value does not exceed 0.05.
years
The typical value is 475 years which corresponds to the return period of the design action applicable to the majority of structures considered to be of average importance.
It depends on the seismicity of the region with values normally ranging between 0.30 and 0.40. Lower values produce more conservative results.
