City of L.A.- Information Bulletin ST-12 (Structural)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I just picked up a copy of an Information Bulletin ST-12 (Structural) titled 
"Interim Alternate Method for Distribution of Lateral Forces in Wood Frame 
Buildings Assuming Flexible Diaphragm."

It's a *DRAFT* document that will essentially allow the use of flexible 
diaphragm analysis of up to three stories of wood frame buildings when 
certain conditions are met. The conditions are not too restrictive and may be 
accommodated in any normal situation, most of which are already part of the 
LA Code.

Does anybody have any information on when will this be implemented?
