horiz. diaph.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What is the advantage of 1/2"- 5 ply horizontal diaphragm vs. 1/2"- 4
ply, both str. 1? Am I correct in saying the allowable diaphragm  shear
for a given nailing/blocking is the same but the allowable vertical load
carrying capacity (d+l) is different?
