RE: Diaphragm Chords

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
How does the building work to transfer the lateral forces. I believe the
deck works as the chord parallel to the long wall. The first joist in from
the short wall (parallel to the short wall) probably works as the chord  in
the other direction.

There is usually an angle parallel with the wall that is a deck edge and
pour stop.  As long as the angle is welded it can be the chord.
