Re: Triangular Shear Walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thor Matteson, SE has written a book on shear walls which includes a discussion of sloping shear walls.  His website, , has a non-printing version (near the bottom of the website) of his Appendix B which describes the methodology for sloping walls, but I highly recommend you get the book.  He's done a good job of presenting shearwall design and construction.

Fellow Engineers:
My question is how to calc hold down requirements and
boundary shear for triangular shear walls. Sometime
back there was a discussion on the list that indicated
some uncertainty, but I can't recall if there were any
conclusions. I'd appreciate your info.
