Re: Hankinson with different LDF's

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
LDF = 0.9 for "static loading" from soil...  LDF = 1.6 for wind-induced shear....  I'd applied each to each Z_perp and Z_parl respectively...  The 0.9*Z_perp will be the governing case....

If you have an anchor bolt in a sill plate with a top of wall restraint force from soil loading of 200 plf  perpendicular to grain and a parallel to grain load from a shear wall of 250 plf.  Are the LDF’s of .9 and 1.6 applied before input to the Hankinson formula or is the result from the formula multiplied by the larger LDF of 1.6?  Sudden brain blockage

Thanks, Joe
