Re: 1962 LA BC

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
My 1970 LA City code indicates V=KCW.

K=1 for all other bldg types
K=1.33 for box systems
K=.8 for dual bracing systems of ductile frame and shear walls
K=.67 for ductile frames
K=3 for elevated thanks
K=1.5 for structures other than bldgs.

C=.5/Qubed root of T

hope this helps
