Seismic Design Example

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For those of you that have and understand the "2006 IBC Structural/Seismic Design Manual Vol.2" I have a question.
On page 32 to determine the Anchorage at A on a perforated shear wall:
Going from the formula  (0.9-0.2*SDS)*D + Wo*QE
Wo = 3.0,   SDS = 1.19
they suddenly go to the formula  (0.9-0.2*SDS)*D + Wo*E
Putting the numerical values in they get  (0.9-0.2*1.19)*D + 0.66*D
My question is, how did they get 0.66*D from Wo*QE or Wo*E  ?
Can anyone shed some light on this for me?
Thank you,
