RE: 2007 CBC special seismic load combinations

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

Here is a good "Code Simple" segment by SK Ghosh and Susan Dowty published in the Feb 2008 edition of Structural Engineer Magazine.

 

It discusses the conflicts between the standard (ASCE 7) and the Code (IBC) as well as the supplement to the IBC that clarifies - and the fact that supplements are not usually adopted by jurisdictions.

 

In CA, we would have to wait for a supplement to the CBC (technically).
