Seismic Provisions 97-OCBF(ASD)

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

 Hi,

1. Using part III of Seismic Provisions 97-OCBF(ASD)section 14.1 mentions 1.5 times the strength. Does it mean the formulas 4-a & 4-b have to be magnified by 1.5? If so, what is the rational behind it?

2. Does formula (6-1) of pert I apply to part III of Provisions, and what other formula is used in conjunction with (6-1) to get the tension force in the OCBF?

Thanks,

Joseph Harouni
