RE: Plywood to Light Gage Diaphragms

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

Actually Michael, I’m looking for diaphragm design information. I’ve seen the shear wall guide you have indicated (and I think I have a copy somewhere), but I’m curious about diaphragm design information.

The SSMA has a book/pamphlet with Shear Wall Design guide in the back. (at least that's the URL in the book).

It seems there was some discussion some time back about diaphragm design values for plywood attached to light gage framing members.  I didn’t think there was such a value(s), but today during my lunch break I say a fairly extensive project where the roof is constructed with plywood over light gage framing.  I didn’t see anything else such as metal decking or diagonal bracing.


Are there some new values out there I don’t know about.
