OT - broncos rule

Title: OT - broncos rule

i hated to do that but you made me.

does anyone have input on this?

footnote f for ibc 2003 table 1604.3 allows reducing the wind by 30% when considering deflections.  it seems implied that in order to use this reduction, one needs to be using the design procedure presented in the ibc (the simplified one).  *** i know the ibc references asce ***

is it wrong to use this reduction in combination with the detailed procedure presented in asce 7-02?  it seems like it would be since i think the simplified procedures gives higher values than the detailed procedure.  maybe the footnote should say "0.7 * W when using the simplified procedure and 0.85 * W when using the detailed procedure".
