The Use of Rho and Omega-Not together

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Section 1633.2.6 (p2-20) states that collector elements should be designed
for the special seismic load of section 1612.4 which includes the Omega-Not
factor.

My question:

When calculating Em do you include the Rho factor?

It doesn't make sense to me that Rho and Omega would be used together.

Sincerely



Stephen Fisher
