Re: FREE STANDING MASONRY WALL

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

the upper bound value given by equation 32-1, UBC 97 but the more customary
value used for free standing walls is covered in equation 32-3, UBC 97.
When you look at the value given by 32-3, Fp = 0.7CaIpWp, it provides very
comparable results to the older 94 code.  This should yiels around 0.3 Wp
value.  I hope this helps
