Plywood Shearwals & Elevated Conc Piers

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

A light-frame structure, with plywood shearwalls, does not have sufficient
lengths of tributary shearwalls (Li), within the 'wall-line' being considered,
to comply with the prescribed height/length ratios for plywood shear walls.
May the bases of the Li be elevated above the finish floor to attain the minimum
height/length ratio?   If so, must all Li within the wall-line be the same?
Thanks in advance.
