Blow-off '97 UBC Drift Limit?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
	We are designing a hypothetical two story wood frame structure with
plywood shear walls.  Can some one help us conceptualize where excessive
drift can effect life safety?  Is it reasonable to blow-off the drift
limitations given in the code in accordance with 1997 UBC section 1630.10.2
exception 1?

Thank you for you thoughts,

George Richards
