Did you notice the comment, "This document is under construction and
will continue to be enhanced." on the title page? I wonder if there are
differences between the hard copy and the virtual copy.

NAVFAC P-355, Seismic Desgin for Buildings has a chapter on
diaphragms which discusses flexibility. Also know as Army TM 5-809-10
and Air Force AFM 88-3, Chap 13.

We don't do a whole lot of building design in our group, and it has been a

work that fully explains the various methods and theories for diaphragm
design (i.e. Rigid, Semi-Rigid, etc.)

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
