Re: Plywd diaph. deflection

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

There is a formula for calculating the deflection of a plywood
diaphragm in the UBC.  I believe that it is in volume 3.  The same
formula is in the AITC manual.  Please remember to include the
deflection of your frames or shearwalls.
