FEMA-350 OMF = 2003 IMRF?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I had a note in my FEMA-350 that section 3.9.2  says ordinary moment frames can have 2% drift and drift =plastic rotation +1% + - and that 2000 IBC intermediate moment frame were based on 2% plastic rotation per 97 AISC Seismic  10.2a.   The note indicates FEMA-350 IMRF = 2000 IBC OMF.  
 
We were noticing at work that the 2003 IBC R's have changed.  Is a FEMA-350 OMF still equal a 2003 IBC IMRF?
