wood truss diaphragm

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] Dear Fellow Engineers,

These are just general questions for residential design:

    1) If a truss has a ceiling, can it be design to transfer shear to
interior shear walls?
   2) If a truss has no ceiling, what kind of bracing is provided to
transfer shear from the roof diaphragm to the shear wall (at the bottom chord
level)?

Thanks for your thoughts!
