diagonal sheathing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Does anyone know how to determine the shear capacity of an existing diaphragm 
made from 1x6 diagonal sheathing? The building was built in 1960.

Also, what about engaging a roof diaphragm (diagonal sheathing) with new 
shear walls if the roofing is existing and will remain ( ie. no nails through 
the top into the blocking).
