Timber pitched roof as a Diaphragm

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Has anyone done any analysis on ridged roofs considered as diaphragms for the transfer of lateral shears from walls over a vaulted space to another wall?
 
If so I would be interested to get the results of such or equivalent empirical data.  Are there any software packlages that include such deliberations?
