R value for Plywood shear walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Are most engineers using R=5.0 or R=4.5 for plywood shearwalls?

If the plywood does not carry gravity loads, is it feasible to use R=4.5
for wood frame, plywood shear wall construction?

Any thoughts, or has this already been hashed out?
