SEAOC Design Manual Vol 3 Example 4 design question:

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Turning to Page 229 of the Seaoc Design Manual Vol 3, Example 4 "Reinforced
Concrete Wall".

When comparing phi*Vn with the max per UBC 1921.6.5.6  8*Acv*sqrt(f`c), Phi
was not applied to the Max allowed.

Can someone explain why phi was not applied,

Thanks
