The factor applied to this term also carries units of 1/length so that
the results work.  You will notice that this factor changes for SI.

Subject: Nail Slip


I'm working with the UBC formula for deflection of a plywood sheathed
shear
wall in Section 23.223 of UBC Standard 23-2.

The deflection determined by the formula and each of the terms in the
equation for shear wall deflection have units of length except the
nail slip
term, which has units of length x length (h has units of inches, and
en --
according to Table 23-2-K has units of inches).

What am I missing?
