FW: UBC Eq. 30-1

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Gerard,

I think that Ev is only used as an addition to the dead load and not a reduction.  The reduction of dead load is another factor in a different section and is limited to cantilevers and prestressed members.  For those of you using ASD, Ev can be ignored.

Ev is only used in non-working stress design. It is a reduction factor
for dead lead and acts Upward. SO combine this term with your DL and
you'll get something smaller than 0.9D in your load combo.

In the UBC Eq. 30-1 E=rhoEh + Ev, what is the direction for Ev?
Are we suppose to combine numerically the expressions rhoEh & Ev?
Thanks!
