RE: Plywood to Light Gage Diaphragms

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

Thanks Eric,

 

I think I will look into the LGSEA documents.  As you said the ICC document is for one particular fastener, but I will look into that a little further.  I’m not doing anything at the moment, but the project up the street caught my eye, and I just couldn’t remember any criteria for this application. 

 

Thanks again,

Joe Grill

LGSEA has a technical note (for sale of course) which gives some guidance.  Also, try ICBO ER-4144 (I guess it’s ICC now) for one pneumatic fastener product which lists diaphragm values.

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.

 

www.ssma.com (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.
