re: amusement structures

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thanks for the responses. I think I should have been a little clearer in 
what I was looking for. My main concern is the UBC's stipulation that these 
type of structures can be designed with a rho=1.0. I don't understand where 
the redundancy in the cantilevered column system is. If it were to have to 
be designed with a rho=1.5, then seismic would govern the design in my 
case.
