Re: cantilevered flexible diaphragms / section 2315.1

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A bigger hidden question is if your have shear walls at the cantileved portion. If so the defection of the beams that support the shear walls should be checked using  special seismic equations beacuse of the offsets. You may find that for the cantilevered beams need to be steel unless your floor deeps approach 24".
