Re: ASCE-7 Ice Loads

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You are correct, the assumption is they're "incorporated by reference." But further confusion is down by the additional load combinations in ASCE 7 that don't have counterparts in IBC.

Am I missing something, or does the 2006 IBC say nothing about ice loads? Sometimes Chapter 16 refers to ASCE 7 as the source for load determination and sometimes it doesnt. If ice loads are important enough to be in ASCE 7, why arent they in the IBC?
