ASCE 7-02 Section 9.5.2.7.1 Special Seismic Load

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
ASCE 7-02 Section 9.5.2.7.1 entitled "Special Seismic Load" states that the special seismic load calculated from this section is to be used in the strength load combinations 5 and 7 (2.3.2) and the ASD load combinations 3 and 5 (2.4.1).  However, ASD load combination 3 does not have an E term.  Therefore, it appears that the ASD load combinations using the special seismic load should be 5 and 8 (2.4.1).  The current errata does not reflect this.  Clarification?
