Light Ga Steel Stud and Story Drift

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
This is regarding the design of light gauge steel studs used in buildings where the primary shear resistance and load bearing is through braced frames.
The UBC sec. 1633.2.4.2 talks about the exterior elements which will pertain to this subject.  How does this affect the design and how have structural engineers in CA designed for this provision?  This will def. cause distress if the connections are not designed adequately.
