Massachusetts Building Code

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I need to someone familiar with the Massachusetts Building Code to confirm whether the building officials will allow any calculated overstresses.  780 CMR 1604.1 seems pretty clear about this and in my long ago experience I've run into this quirk.  In most juridisdictions, small calculated overstresses ( up to 4%) are usually not challenged.

TIA,
