Dear members of Civilea,

I need help.

I want to know whether R ( R=Response Modification Factor ) we calculate based on method in fema 273 always results value of R that "near" with value of R in the building code ?

Can the value of "R" much smaller or bigger than "R theory" as in the building code ?

Thanks

Paladin
