Can I combine 2-2x4 Redwood sill plates to meet the new 97 UBC foundation plate requirement? I am in processing of assembling a table for selecting the plywood shear wall, foundation plates and anchor bolts especially for Seismic Zone #4. Since SEOAC's list has a limit on file size, I put my table in file called "dowel02.doc" in the web site in case you would like to take a look of it. 97 UBC many new limits on the 2x sill plates. I think most of the contractors would prefer to have the options of using 2-2x whenever they can. (Unless the 3x RWD become a lot easier to get from now on.) Here are my questions: - Is it feasible to use 2-2x and treat it as a 3" thick plate? - Can I still use the same NDS's design equations 8.2-1 to 8.2-6 to obtain shear capacity? - How much nailing is enough to consider the 2 plates as one? Thank you for your time. I also want to take this opportunity to thank Mr.Tim McCormik and Mr. Charles Jourdian for helping me on my earlier questions about SG value for Foundation Redwood.
