97 UBC 1633.2.4

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I've got a question regarding the Deformation Compatibility requirements
for the the 1997 UBC (section 1633.2.4).  My question is this, if I'm
using working stress method (divide the seismic load as determined in
the 97 UBC by 1.4), can I still use the 70% allowable stress increase as
stated in the 1994 UBC?
