Title: RE: REDUNDANCY FACTOR IN DESIGN MANUAL
They are the loads you get from the analysis of the building after you distribute your lateral loads. The intent was to demonstrate how the redundancy coefficient is calculated. So the details of how they got these loads was left out. This is an iterative process, you need to have an initial design laid out and then check your redundancy coefficient. If it's less than 1, no problem. Otherwise you need to bump your lateral load by Rho.

Could anybody help me work out example number 15, Seismic Design manual -
Reliability/Redundance Factor? I am trying to figure out how the values for
Vwi were obtained for the example of the building with shear walls (page 50).
Are these loads Vi and Vwi given? or did they leave out some steps to derive
Vwi? Is Vwi supposed to be the total shear in a continuous shear wall?
Thanks for the help.
