[SEAOC] Re: [SEAOC] Basement wall with adjacent slab on grade - Help

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
     Dennis, in my response to your question, i forgot to mention that i use
a wall to floor tie since the floor diaphragm deflection would put the ledger
in cross grain bending even though the forces are usually small ( seismic
force of wood floor and wood walls away from masonry wall). The TJI has
stiffner plywood added then a Simpson HTT is nailed to the TJI at 4' O.C.and
bolted to the ledger bolt embedded in the slab.
