The purpose of this note is to develop an exact method for calculating the distribution of the maximum of the sum of the sustained load and the transmitted load and to compare these results with simulation results obtained by McGuire and Cornell and results by an approximate method proposed by Peir. A numerical analysis is developed and the results are presented.
