  2. Can any body give me referrence of clause which is generally used in foundation design that is "33 increase in bearing capacity of soil is allowed under application of wind or seismic loads"
  3. Under what conditions we should use load combinations mentioned under Subject heading in UBC -97? As per my research we should use them only for " Element supporting Discontinuous System"-UBC 97-1630.8.2 and for "Collector Elements"-UBC 97 1633.2.6. So, there is no need to use these combinations for all structures and its components (Exceptions are mentioned above). Is my understanding correct? Please reply with referrence
