Re: REFERENCE TO HSS MOMENT CONNECTION

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bill 
actually I have big argument with the County of Riverside 
they refused it and now I'm looking for a section in the code 
it says you do not have to check drift 
if Rho=1 and one story and Na=1 

thanks
Dave
