RE: Collectors & Drag Struts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Sure,

A building without reentrant corners or interior isolated shear walls would
have no drags. A moderate tiltup building of rectangular plan or a square
box house would not require drag struts. The tiltup *would* have cross-ties
however, but these are not collectors. And yes, drags and collectors are
synonymous but there may be some esoterica of which I am unaware.

Are collectors and drag struts exactly synonymous? Can you have a
situation where you are designing a diaphragm that neglects or does not
include them?
