RE: resisting moment

For wind:

For IBC 2003, try section 1609.1.3

For IBC 2006, try section 1605.3.2

 

Both sections say that the 2/3 D is only when using the Alt. Basic load combo’s

 

If using the basic load combo’s just follow the load multipliers

 

For seismic:

Just follow the load multipliers for either set of load combo’s

Hi

 

Just wonder where in the code resisting load for uplift for wood shear wall

for wind and seismic

 

I see this equation in the book  SEA #2 example  (0.6- 0.14Sds)Mr

 I know  for wind  stays the same 2/3Mr

but I can find in the code

 

Thanks
