RBS Criteria

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Listers,

With respect to the Englehardt, August 1998 Design Recommendations:
Design Basis limits "...the maximum beam moment that can develop at the face
of the column to values in the range of about 85 to 100 percent of the
beam's actual plastic moment."

I have 2 questions:
1. Where is this criteria is included or ignored in the SAC/FEMA 350
Guidelines?
2. Are the requirements the same for SMRFs and OMRFs?
