Re: lateral load

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
This is actually quite common, and good engineering practice.

For the wall to span from the foundation to the roof, it must be able to
deflect. If the mezzanine is attached to the wall, the wall cannot deflect
without loading the mezzanine.
