RE: UBC97 STORY DRIFT LIMITATION

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The .025 times the story height is correct.  However, you will notice
that the load you are to use for this story drift has increased per
1630.9.2.  The service deflection shall be multiplied by .7 and by R.

Subject: UBC97 STORY DRIFT LIMITATION


Hi everyone!
I am designing a three story office building based on 1997 ubc.
per section 1630.10.2 story drift shall not exceed .025 times the story
height.
this is five time the allowable per 1994 ubc(.005 x ht).
Am I missing anything?
any comment or suggestion?
