Re: Tongue and groove diaphragm

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Is there any reason why I could not just show a detail of nailing to the blocking on either side of the 3/4" tongue and groove plywood and thereby achieving the same blocked diaphragm strength without the use of 1 1/8" T & G with staples?

I have 3 story buildings (60'x60'plan)which will have tongue and groove floors with 1.5" of lightweight concrete topping. The walls are wood stud with gyp board.

I have not worked with T&G before. I am looking for advice on what the standard attachment is and the minimum attachment of the T&G if I consider my concrete to be acting separately as my diaphragm.

thanks
