RE: IBC Deflection Limits for Brick Cladding

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The IBC L/240 is the IBC limit.  I won't argue whether it is prudent or 
not.  It is just what the IBC has established as a limit.  But once we 
decide on a deflection limit, the next step is to determine if this is 
service load or a limit state load.  If it is a service load, what is it? 
A 10 year wind load is the tradition for service level loads.  That is what 
 the IBC uses by employing the 0.42 factor on the C&C limit state loads.
