That would seem to be a rational approach.  We have used the special
load combinations for the similar verbage in 2213.9.3.1.

Item 2 under section 2213.6 of 97UBC says "Fully restrained (Type F.R. or Type 1) connections with the design strengths of the connections capable of resisting a combination of gravity loads and W times the design seismic force."

Does this mean the load combo is that of equation (12-17)?

Could anyone confirm this? Or, simply give me some clarifications on this UBC item. Thank you for your assistance.
