Re: SMRF and connections

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Sorry I'm late with a response but here is my two cents.
I'm currently in the middle of construction of a new
building in SF that has shear walls and RBS Moment
Frames. During design we had several discussions
with the building department about mock-up testing
requirements. The building department said testing
would be required if we used the UBC. Testing
requirements would only be waived if we used
FEMA for an OMF or FEMA prequalified joints
in a SMRF. They also stated that our spec must
incorporate the FEMA QA/QC requirements.
