Re: IBC Section 1908.1.16 is a bugger

I know 2.5 factor killing especially non-structural component case.  I don't know you are in California or not. However, In California Building Code,  we have some relaxation for non-structural component members.  If your are located in California,  see 1908A.1.47.

Does anyone know the source of the 2.5 factor mentioned in the modification to ACI 318 Appendix D.3.3.5? It seems rather arbitrary to me. But, what do I know?
