Re: UBC1994vsASCE 7-95

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have used both but the ASCE 7-95 is not so much popular among our countrymen, 
Alex. The UBC 97 has drastically changed from the UBC 94 on seismic provisions 
and I would suggest you get a copy of it. ASCE 7-95 appears to have lower wind 
loading results per my experience.

I  recently acquired an ASCE 7-95 found that its wind load provisions are 
entirely different from my old   UBC-1988 .
     
I am thinking of getting a UBC 1994.
     
Which code  do  you use?
