RE: Lighter Loads in IBC vs. UBC

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You also need to consider the parapet loads for in in-plane condition,
these values are different than the wall below roof level loads, and
they are much higher in some cases. You will have a parapet load on both
sides of the building, a load on the windward parapet and a load on the
leeward parapet.

Watch out for the Component and Cladding forces.  From my experience,
they usually come out much higher.
