Re: ASCE 7 errata

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
They actually did just what you said, Errata for the Errata, It was just much later on in the pdf as I got my way through it... it should read COMPOSITE.

My guess is that they are meant to be the same thing.  It might be that they need to issue an errata for the errata, however, as I don't think they mean to use the word "ordinary", as "ordinary" implies a lack of ductility requirements that is NOT reflected generally such high R-factors (that system has an R of 8)...that and B13 has "ordinary composite steel and concrete braced frames".
All in all, it is just a hair confusing.

Subject: ASCE 7 errata

I think I know the answer, but I only want to go through the exercise once...

Errata page E-4 modifies ASCE 7-05 Table 12.2-1.

In the first one, it's for item B11 and reads "Ordinary steel and concrete eccentrically braced frames" and modifies the Omega from 2.0 to 2.5

In my ASCE, B11 is titled "Composite steel and concrete eccentrically braced frames"

So, while I think they are talking about the same structural system, the way it's worded in the Errata isn't as clear in my opinion.

Want to make sure I'm okay on redline-ing my ASCE 7
