RE: Uplift Anchorage at Perforated Shear Wall

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

It doesn’t appear that is what the IBC “perforated shear wall” method is saying.  It is giving equations for both end of wall uplift and uplift to anchorage between the end walls.

I design the intermediate anchor bolts to handle all in-plane shear and the end anchors for uplift only.

I am looking a shear wall using the perforated shear wall provisions in the 2003 IBC.  There are uplift force calculations (2305.3.7.2.4) and in-plane shear calculations (2305.3.7.2.5) and uplift anchorage between wall ends (2305.3.7.2.6).  Are the anchor bolts required to be designed for in-plane shear acting at the same time with the uplift anchorage between wall ends?   

 

Thanks,
