Re: 1.1Load Factor in 1997 UBC

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For background on discrepancy, see Building Standards, May-June 1998, pgs
205-209,"Design of Reinforced Concrete Buildings under the 1997 UBC", S.K.
Ghosh.

In summary, use 1.0 in lieu of 1.1.

Hope this helps,

Has anyone clarified the inconsistancy between 97 UBC and ACI 318 regarding
load factors for D+L+E?
