RE: Adjustment Factors Cd for timber column

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Gordon,
 
Yeah, we found those but for example the 1.25 applies only to the Lr not to the combination.  We gave up, I used one of my spreadsheet models (used to do everything on those!), and did a hand check.
 
Ps: on another front, when we changed the loads input to "Tributary Area" - the allowable bending stress increased?  Can't figure that one out!
 
Thanks,
Paul Guthrie

Paul,

There  is a column for Cd factors on the load combination tab in both the wood beam and column modules.

My question is regarding EnerCalc: "For wood beam design we are unable to locate the input location for CD, load duration factor
