RE: UBC Section 1512.4 Equation 12-17

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Ben -

Thanks. You're right, should have been 1612.4, not 1512.4. Too much Diet
Pepsi.

I guess the place to find that "L" doesn't include roof live load is in
1603, Notations, where Lr is defined as roof live load.

But, now that you bring it up, equation 12-17 doesn't mention "S" either.

Sooo.... how do you conclude snow loads are to be considered in 12-17?

Thanks,

: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?
