I was asked my opinion if in single family construction you could use the provisions for conventional framing to evaluate the lateral force resisting system in one direction and engineer the lateral force resisting system in the other direction. My response was that if a structure requires engineering for the lateral force resisting system both directions should be analyzed and designed. This came from a Zone 4 area, however, I feel that whatever logic is used to resolve this question it would apply in all cases especially since wind governs in a great many cases anyway. I would appreciate your thoughts and comments. Mel Slaysman
