Re: U.B.C., Table 16-N, Rw

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Selection critera for  Lateral-Force-Resisting Systems 1a (Rw=8) vs. 1b
(Rw=6)? Traditionally we usually reserve Rw of  8  for  small structures, such
as residences, or larger commerical  buildings where shear walls stack and
there are no major vertical or horizontial plan offsets or irregularities.  Is
there more specific critera than description in Table 16-N?
