RE: 2000 IBC

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The first eqn. (16-39) Should read as [Ta=(C)t * (h)n to power of ¾] where C
and h are identified following the eqn.. The second eqn. (16-40) should read
T= 0.1 N where N is the number of stories.

	I've been away for a while due to back surgery, but have re-joined

	I am now working with a client who asked us to use the 2000 IBC, and
	have a question for those of you who are familiar with it.
	the section on estimation of building period (1617.4.2.1) appears to
	have some equations misplaced or missing.  The first equation (Ta =
	appears to belong lower on the page, where there is a missing
	I'm sure the first equation should be the typical period estimation
	= Ct(hn)3/4).  Is there any errata for this code yet?

	Thanks,  Mike
