Re: Rigid plywood diaphragms

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Riddle me this one, Batman.

If the wood diaphragms are so rigid in the new Code, why can't we use them in
rotation or as cantilevers for more than 15% of the backspan according to the
current LA City code?  Is this a Code conflict?  Is a soft-story really a
myth?
