RE: Wood Moment Frame?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Nope! The maximum H/b ratio in Zone 3 is 3.5:1 per Table 23-II-G
Condition 3, footnote 2 "In Seismic Zones 0,1,2 and 3, the maximum ratio
may be 3-1/2:1"
Sorry to be picky, but this one bothered me and I had to track it down
as I thought you were incorrect. Still, in the original message, the
actual condition is more like 5:1 if you consider a 10'-0" tall garage
door and a 2'-0" wide panel.

I seismic Zone 3, the height to width ratio should be 2:1.
