If my memory serves me (and it is getting more rusty these days) without digging out my various versions, this happened when going from ACI 318-99 to ACI 318-02 when the “alternative” load combinations from Appendix C in ACI 318-99 (aka the “ASCE 7 load combinations”) were moved into the main body of ACI 318 and the “traditional” ACI load combinations (i.e. 1.4D+1.7L, etc) were moved to Appendix C as well as the “alternative provisions for flexural and compression members” of Appendix B of ACI 318-99 were moved into the main body of the code for the 2002 version and the more “traditional” provisions were moved into Appendix B. As part of this change, there was a new reliability study done if I recall correctly. Thus, it was more than just the Phi factors moving from the ACI 318-99 Appendix C into the main body of ACI 318-02...they also adjusted the ACI 318-99 Appendix C Phi factors based upon this new reliability study.
