Re: Calculation Submittal

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I will try to cut and paste, hope the formatting works:

BASIS OF DESIGN

All calculations and specifications conform to the established guidelines
set forth by:

Uniform Building Code (UBC)
1997 Edition, Second Printing
International Conference of Building Officials
5360 S. Workman Mill Rd., Whittier, California  90601

Manual of Steel Construction, Allowable Stress Design (AISC)
Ninth edition, Third Printing
American Institute of Steel Construction
1 E. Wacker Drive Suite 3100, Chicago, Illinois 60601

Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI)
ACI 318-95
American Concrete Institute
Box 19150, Redford Station, Detroit, Michigan  48219

National Design Specification for Wood Construction (NDS)
ANSI/NFoPA NDS-1997
National Forest Products Association
1250 Connecticut Avenue, Washington, D.C.  20036

In the event of a conflict in the specifications, the UBC governs.


We then go on to list the table of contents, then design loads, then
vertical calcs, lateral calcs, foundation calcs, any other calcs that may be
required.

This is what I am more or less looking for. Do you have an expanded
version?

Our approach is to include a Section titled Basis of Design on the first
page after the cover that states "All calculations and specifications
conform to the established guidelines set forth by: " , then list the
various applicable codes (building and material), and at the end state
"In
the event of a conflict in the specifications, the Uniform Building Code
governs"

We always submit calculations, being on the west coast, and we consider
this
sufficient.  What else are you specifically trying to convey in the
cover
letter?

Done all that. I am looking for some type of cover letter to go on top
of the calculations.

When I have to submit design calculations, I list somewhere the building
code and major material codes (AISC Spec, ACI 318, etc.) used.  Either
on
the cover sheet, or on a design criteria sheet (that also lists all the
basic dead and live, snow, wind, and seismic loads I've used)
