Patterned Live Load in Lateral Load Combinations

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I guess I should simplify this discussion a little.

I want to know what YOU do in making your frame analyses. DO you use
patterned live loads in combination with wind or seismic loading? Or do you
consider the prospect of such a load occurring simultaneously with
"extraordinary events" like hurricanes and earthquakes to be too remote to
consider?
