It could be that this is due to a statement regarding Section 91.2315.1 about not considering torsion. Apparently, this section is only intended to address open front buildings and modifies what is in the UBC. I think Dennis may be able to expand on this much more. ed gonzalez >>> <SDGSE(--nospam--at)aol.com> 08/17/99 11:31AM >>> I just received a call from Steve Iconda of the City of L.A., Code Section, regarding my post of 8/16/99 (attached below), which was forwarded to him by Henry Wong of the City of L.A. (apparently a lurking plan checker). Mr. Iconda asked me why I was making such a statement. My reply was that I did not make the statement. I only quoted and questioned what FSRahbar(--nospam--at)aol.com stated, and whether it was true. After some discussion about the subject of rigid vs. flexible diaphragms, Mr. Iconda denied such policy adoption by the City of L.A. Mr. Wong, in the future, please forward the complete and uncut posts as to who said what. Oshin Tosounian, S.E.

However, isn't this against the code adoption process, where localities must adopt no less stringent code provisions? Unless, the rigidity analysis in the UBC, as L.A. sees it, was not meant to be applied to wood diaphragm. Otherwise, it would go against City of L.A.'s "No rotation or more than 15% cantilever in wood diaphragms" policy. Oshin Tosounian, S.E. >>
