RE: Wood Construction Holdowns at Corners

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I think you guys are off the mark here. I always thought that this was intended to apply to frame buildings where a column was part of frames in both orthogonal directions. It seems silly to apply this to a corner post or column in a wood framed structure. Besides, how much axial load could the corner post or stud be carrying in typical conditions?

Pat-

1997 UBC, section 1633.1

Read the paragraph following the exception below "A column of a
structure forms part of two or more intersecting
lateral-force-rresisting systems."

Regards,

Bill
