RE: masonry development length equations

Thanks Scott, I’m mostly curious as to why the Florida Building Code might have reverted to the old ‘02 ld equation for ASD even though the ‘05 has been officially adopted otherwise.

I heard a rumor that the ’05 equations were intended to address deficiencies in areas where seismic loads govern the design and that lap lengths could be unnecessarily large for areas where wind loads typically govern the design. Curiously, the FBC retains the new ’05 ld equation for Strength Design.

Perhaps you can confirm or deny this.
