out of plane anchorage Question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
consider a 35' x 18' one story masonry building with a wood truss roof
The masonry walls have a 4x nailer on top, where the trusses are
attached for bearing and out of plane forces.

Section 1633.2.8.1 states that wood elements of the anchorage
system shall be 2 1/2" minimum, does this mean that the trusses
have to be 3x thick?
