LA City/County OMRF requirements for 2-story wood frame house

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi:
 
What are the latest OMRF design guidelines/requirements for wood houses in LA City/County?
 
I attained the SEAOSC seminar on 9/12/1998. It was allowed to design the connection with Rw = 2.5 under 1994 UBC for flexible wood diaphragm at that time.  
 
Does any one know what shall be done for the 1997 UBC? Use R = 2.5/1.4 = 1.79?
 
Thanks in advance!
