perforated shear wall equaiton correction

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Disregard the previous equation on the perforated shearwall. (I switched
A&B)
The equation is
Co = 100/(B(1-3A)+3A)

Reference table 2305.3.7.2

Let A= the ratio of maximum opening height to the wall height.
That?s the value across the top of the chart.

Let B= percent of full height sheathing to full length of wall.
That?s the left column on chart.
