How can a masonry wall reduce the deflection of the diaphragm and not take any of the shear force in it? If it is reducing the deflection, it must be doing it by providing some type of resistance. If it is providing resistance then why is it not a shear wall? And if it is a shear wall, why does it not have to be designed as such? Maybe I am misunderstanding the problem. Is a cross-wall parallel to the seismic force or perpendicular to it? I do not have a UBC commentary to get the explanation. I readily admit I do not use the UBC that often so I am not that familiar with it. When I do seismic design I usually use one of the other codes or ASCE 7. __________________________________________________ Richard Lewis, P.E.
