omega

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Volume II Seismic Design Examples, Page 75
 
Why is omega not applied to the second floor shear panel load which is input to the diaphragm and transfered to 1st floor offset shear resisting elements.
 
They only apply omega to the second floor diaphragm load, and not the load which is being distributed from above. I don't get it.
