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.
