Section 2.0 - Loads

ID #1170

Is there any back up material for the usage of Ka=0.6 for feedlines?The formula to subtract the solidity ratio appears to indicate that Ka=0.8 might be more likely for open structures without many feedlines. So it appears that the value of 0.6 is not conservative. The text reads:"Ka need not exceed 0.6"Should the text instead read:"Ka shall not be less than 0.6" ?

The maximum Ka value of 0.6 was taken from the IASS Standard reference contained in Annex N and from the analyses and studies used to correlate Revision G results to previous editions of the Standards.
