UBC: OMF connections

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
<Reference 1994 UBC section 2211.6.2, (or equivalent 1997 UBC section 2213.6.2)>

Say you're designing the connections for an "Ordinary-Moment-Frame" in a one
or two story metal building (like a pre-engineered building) and the *wind*
loads control over the seismic loads.  Would you still design the connection
to be "capable of resisting a combination of gravity loads and 3 (Rw/8)
times the design **seismic** loads" in accordance with '94 UBC sect. 2211.6.2 ?
   Thanks.
