RE: UBC Section 1633.2.6 Collector Elements

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

forces, but at strength state not allowable.  The
1.7 increase converts your allowable connection
resistance to a strength resistance.  Also, Be careful
not to reduce your EQ load by 1.4 before facoring
up by omega.
