Now each wall segement is multiplied by 10/lw. This has the desired effect for long walls, but has a penalty effect for short wall segments This was, in my opinion, never intended. This has some serious negative impacts on wood frame construction. Please consider this matter, at your next Seismology Committee meeting. >> Ron, I appreciate your candor, however if this is not what the intent of the code authors was, then why not bite the bullet and amend this code section now, whatever the process is.
