horiz. diaph. blk'g.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If 2x4 blocking, laid flat is used for blocking in a horiz. diaph., what reduction in shear capacity should be applied?
 
If there is such a reduction, does it correspond to a shorter (10dx1.5") nail, nailed into the 1.5" block dimension or the normal 10dx3" nail?
 
Or, is blocking laid flat simply out of the question?
