Re: steep pitched roof diaphragms and sloped shear wall top chords

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
As Nels mentioned, attaching sloped roof diaphragms to shear walls with
sloping top chords requires special consideration.  This topic is covered in
Appendix B of my upcoming "Wood-frame Shear Wall Construction Guide," which
the ICBO expects to publish later this year.  I can e-mail interested
parties a PDF of the Appendix.  Send me an e-mail with the subject line,
"Send Appendix B".

For more information on the Guide, visit
