QUESTION REGARDING CONCRETE MOMENT FRAMES

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello,
 
UBC 1921.3.1.3 requires the width-to-depth ratio of flexural frame members
in concrete moment resisting frames to be less than 0.3.  Is there any basis
for this, other than observations from practice?
 
We have an architect who would like to use some concrete beams in a frame
that don't meet this requirement.
 
Thanks,
