Re: Residential Flexible/Rigid Diaphragm Analysis

Dennis,

Currently the City of San Jose and the City of Palo Alto do penalize the
embedded column with the lower Rw but do not apply the lower Rw to the whole
structure.  I recommend you contact them for their take on the issue.  

Hope this helps.
