I am bidding on a project that uses multiple material, but is essentially a flexible diaphragm (wood framed). A section of the structure is Masonry block, there is a tall concrete wall that runs through the length, but is not intended to be structural (it is intended to be used like a sculpture) and the primary restraint for the wood roof is a series of embedded steel poles (grade beams and erection pads below). What would be the acceptable Rw to use for the system as a whole based upon both the '94 UBC and what is expected in the '97 UBC? Dennis Wish PE PS I know we discussed this, but I believe our discussion were related to pendulums used in residential construction.
