RE: mtl stud shear walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
These are some of the approvals

 ICBO ES report number 4144, 
LA city RR 24713 and RR 25294.

Note: If you are using the 1998 CA code or the 1997 UBC make sure that these
reports are updated to these codes. Some of the approvals are to the 1994
UBC and shear wall values in those reports were not cyclically tested. 

Also check

Glad to be of service
