Fw: IBC 1617.4.6 Interpretation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Ah, I solved my problem.
Fx is what I expected of Vx and is actually different than Vx.
So, Vx sums from the top down as expected !

Good Day !
I am not sure if I am interpreting the code correctly:
IBC 1617.4.6 Equation 16-47 uses Vx.  Is this Vx cumulative from the top down as is Px?
From previous calculations and the definition, it appears not, but from what makes sense, it does appear
as though it should be the total shear at the level.
