In the NBC it is unclear to me what to increase the seismic loads by....do you multiply the seismic loads by Rd (Ductility-Related Force Modification Factors) or by Ro (Overstrength-Related Force Modification Factors, or do you multiply Ro and Rd together and use that??
The wording in the NBC is confusing!
