Skewed (45 degree) shearwalls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am working on a custom home where the designer has 45'd the corners of
some of the outside walls.

How do I model these walls for vertical shear panel purposes?  With there x
and y components?  

If the top plates are overlapped, like on a 90 degree wall-wall connection,
does it need a strap "around the corner"?

Thanks in advance.
