Moment frames with tension-only bracing for diaphragm

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

UBC Table 16-N seems to be concerned with vertical lataral resisting system only. What if one uses tension-only bracing for diaphragms and use (ordinary/special) moment frames for the vertical system. Should the R value be 2.8 for the building? Thanks.
