RE: 2003 IBC - Importance Factor & Base Shear

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The equations you've referenced aren't making sense to me. Are you referencing 2003 IBC? I'm talking about Ie for base shear seismic forces. I'm looking at Eq. 16-56 in the 2003 IBC.

It is embedded in the calculation of Cs in equations 16-35 through 16-38.

Am I missing something or is the importance factor (Ie) not used in the
calculation of base shear forces? Ie shows up in equations to calculate Fp,
but doesn't seem to be taken into account in the calculation of V.  Any
input is appreciated.

Chris
