For L/H <1, use H for L and L for H.

Hi : 

Is there a typo in UFC 3-340-02 - Dec 5,2008. Table 3-13, Page 595 ?

In the case of four edge supported plate, they have three values of L/H :

i) L/H = 1

2) 1<=L/H<=2

3) 2<=L/H 

Does some one else also thinks that condition i) would should infact have been L/H <=1 ?

Rite now the way it is written it seems that the only way the plate dimensions needs to be selected is such that L>=H. But does not make sense, as H should be (ideally) the height of the door and L the span ?

Can someone pls help me in clarifying this doubt ?

Thanks
