Description

Dear Sirs,

IS code is giving the load combinations saying that EQL=DL+50%/25%LL,and 1.2(dl+ll+eql)
lets say my DL=100,LL=50
Eql=DL+50%LL=100+25=125
in the combination of 1.2(dl+ll+eql)=?

1.2(100+?+125)

plz clarify

Thanks & Regards

Dear Friend Rajasekhar,
While calculating the earth quake loads we have to consider 50% or 25% of LL depending upon live load intensity.
Kindly look into this pdf (Page 13)
