Re: Seismic Design Example

I think the equation should be:

(0.9-0.2x1.19)D  =  0.66D       an EQUQAL sign not a PLUS sign

Those the accountable dead load to hold the end wall down is only 66%.

That would make the equation below meaningful.

Dug Thompson's e-mail is dougt(--nospam--at)  Could you ask him to
address this question?
