RE: UBC DRIFT VERSUS CBC DRIFT





G-
Have you checked the ICC website for errata?  My copy of CBC says the same.  I would think you would use the ASD load combinations of 1612.3, and explain the issue to a plan checker, if needed.

UBC DRIFT VERSUS CBC DRIFT

 
Section 1630.9.1 of the UBC underwent an Errata. The section originally stated that "Where Allowable Stress Design is used and where drift is being computed, the load combinations of section 1612. 2 shall be used". The Errata changed the referenced section to 1612.3 which uses E/1.4.

In the CBC, it still says 1612.2. Did they flip flop again on this or is there an Errata out there for the CBC?

thanks,
-gm
