You might contact John Rose of APA with your specific questions. APA
released a document some months back that was the results of testing and
methodology done on shear panels with openings.
John can be reached by email at: jrose36(--nospam--at) I have forwarded a
copy of  your email to him but you may wish to follow up on your own.
