Maybe it would easier to find the principle axis. Look at the attached rigid diaphragm spreadsheet attached to the back of the Dennis Wish Program. The check for principle axis is that if a force is applied and there is no perpendicular deflection, other than affects of torsion, then that is the principle axis. Forces could be greatly reduced. question 1.do what with x and y drift for one force? I would use drift as the total deflection of the x and y components. question 2. Can orthogonal affects be in a single directional? I thought orthogonal affects are due nonparallel walls. That affects both directions when not in line with the principle axis. question 3 Is Ax directional? The factor is required for an irregularity definition that is not directional specific. A building is an irregular building or not. The Ax factor is to be for both directions. Specific-to-direction are Accidental-torsion and actual eccentricities, and the deflections used to calculate Ax. Until there is a better argument, I would calculate. Ax in both directions and use the
