Re: Rigid vs. Flexible Diaphragm

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Mike & Bill:

Thank you for your input regarding rigid and flexible diaphragm.


How do you handle overturning requirements in your program for a two story building where shear walls along any given line do not stack up - lets say the edge of the second story shear wall lands somewhere other than the ends of the shear wall below. The uplift requirement from the story above will affect the holddown requirement for the wall below and therefore the rigidity.
