RE: 1 1/8" sht'g. diaphragm values

Diaphragm table in building code states "minimum nominal panel
thickness" (and requires minimum nail penetration).  So, for 1-1/8"
sheathing, use either 15/32" Str. I numbers or 19/32 sheathing numbers
(turns out they are the same numbers).  And make sure nail is long
enough to provide 1-1/2" penetration (1-5/8" for older building codes).
