Re: Simpson Strongwall Question

Dennis: 
Regarding the Simpson Strong Wall:
Check the bearing stress perpendicular to the grain on the plywood, due
to the overturning forces, which would occur at a second floor
condition!! They seem very overstressed for this second floor condition.
Maybe the Strong Wall is only to be used when it is directly sitting on
a concrete slab.
