equations

Subject: 2000 IBC, "Unofficial" Errata, Section
1617.4.2.1,Approximate
Fundamental Perio


Refer to page 361, 2000 International Building
Code, First Printing, March
2000.

In my copy of the above 2000 International
Building Code on page 361,
Equation 16-40 has been omitted. It should read "T
sub a = 0.1*N."  Note that
Equation 16-39 is incorrect and it should read: "T
sub a = C sub T * h sub n
^
."

In other words, Equation 16-40 was omitted (blank)
and Equation 16-39 is
incorrect.

These two equations are used to calculate the
Section 1617.4.2.1, approximate
fundamental period of a building,

These two equations are the most fundamental
equations that are used to
calculate the fundamental period of the building,
T, used in Equation 16-36..

Has anybody else discovered this error and/or
other errors in the 2000 IBC?

Will the International Code Council print an
erratum?  Or will we have to
wait until the 2000 IBC Supplement?
