Please trash my first post. In 1994 UBC Special concentric bracing members, the (KL/r) is limited whereas in 1997 UBC Special concentric bracing members, the (L/r) is limited. In both cases, the limit is 1000/root(Fy). The 1996 Blue Book definitions match the 1994 UBC definitions. The section referenced in the 1997 UBC is 2210 Section 10, on page 2-242, in the revisions to the AISC Seismic Provisions. I see it also conflicts with 97 UBC 2188.8.131.52. Looks like a typo on pg 2-242. Sorry if this is too far off thread. It's vaguely related, considering the definition of L, unbraced length, as used in these slenderness limits, for x-braces in the out-of-plane mode. Dave Evans, P.E. TNH, Inc.
