Rw Question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am reviewing a set of plans for a building in the city of LA prepared by
another SE.
I noticed that he is using an Rw of 6 for cantilevered steel columns, and when
I pointed out the 1996 supplement of the 94 UBC requiring
the use of Rw of 3, his reply was that the City of LA did not adopt
this provision. Is this True? and if it is not could you please fax
me the pertinant section from the LACBC

Thankyou, and Happy Holidays
