[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Is there any requirement that requires the use of SCBF if the roof DL is over 20 psf?

Thank you

I am currently working on the design of a building with an Occupancy category of IV in the Southern California area.   The building meets the requirements for OCBF Seismic Design Cat. D and is under 35'.   I was wondering if there are any other requirements, since the building is an essential facility, which would require me to use SCBF?
