Openings in Roof Diaphragm

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am currently working on a project that includes a building with several large (8' x 12') skylights in the roof.  The structure is in Seismic Zone 3 and will most likely have 3" metal deck for the roof.  Does anyone know of any references for designing the roof diaphragm with these large openings.
