Importance Factors

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Is there a convention for designating the various Importance factors for wind, seismic, ice & snow? I've seen Iw for the wind importance factor and Ii for ice but I don't think ASCE 7 is very helpful otherwise.
 
Thanks in advance.
