RE: Modeling Diaphragm Stiffness of Unreinforced Masonry

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
It does. Thanks.4

    Later, it is described how to determine the width of the strut for an uncracked section.  Since your analysis is non-seismic, the infill should never crack.  Then, as you won't be applying any reduction factors to the elastic analysis, I think it would be valid to use that formula for the stiffness of the diagonal compression strut. 

        Hope this helps.
