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.

have a question for those of you who are familiar with it.
the section on estimation of building period (1618.104.22.168) 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?
