Re: More questions about rigid plywood Diaphragms

Dennis:

I think that as a minimum, the plane of the gable would act as a diaphragm to 
the side walls with chord boundaries at the ridge board and eaves. The 
rigidity would then be based on the half diaphragms on each side of  the 
ridge. 

I don't believe that it should be considered a rigid diaphragm for wood 
framed structures either way.
