California Building Code

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Chapter 23A - Wood of the California Building Code, the chapter pertains 
to Public Schools, now has a footnote to Table 23-A-1-K-1 that says the 
values for plywood shear walls must be reduced 25% for earthquake loads. 
Does anyone know how this came about as this footnote did not appear in 
the 1991 version.
