S.K. wrote a paper in the May-June 1998 issue of Building Standards
that answers these questions.  Back issues should be available at a
library or from ICBO.

Subject: UBC Section 1612.2.1, Exception 2


I have some hand written notes in my seminar book when I attended the
ICBO
Seminar on the 1997 UBC Earthquake Regulations. I believe the
presenter was
S.K. Ghosh and I believe he said that this exception, which requires
multiplying the load factors by 1.1, should be deleted and is not
appropriate.

My questions:

1. Does anyone else have similar notes?

2. Has anything been published publicly (such as a SEAOC position
paper)
which states this?

3. (a big one), what about masonry?

TIA,

Bill Allen, S.E.
