Wood - Lateral Bracing

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

Does the lapping of floor joists over interior supports of IRC R502.6.2
constitute lateral restraint of R502.7?  I think it does according to the
cartoon of Figure R502.2, but I can't find anything else that supports that.

Also, I use unbraced length = 1 ft (gravity) when I have floor or roof
