Question on Table 5-21a
A question was asked concerning the formulas in Table 5-21a which is the Uplift Loads for SI units. The pressure formulas even in Addendum 1 to the 11th Edition have left out the multiplying factor 0.785 which is pi/4. Agenda item 650-646 revises the formula to include this multiplier. It also is revising the formulas in many other ways. ITSdesign uses the formulas approved in Agenda item 650-646. This was not approved soon enough to be part of Addendum 1 but should be part of the Addendum 2. I am not sure why this was not caught before Addendum 1 was published.
