Re: UBC Section 1512.4 Equation 12-17

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

First, your section number should be 1612.4 In regard to the f1 factor, it is only applicable to floor loads. Roof live loads do not get mixed with seismic loads (other than snow)

Where it says f1=0.5 for other live loads, does that include roof live load?


Besides opinions, where is this specified in the code?
