I have a project where the client has (so far) provided a floor system consisting of 3/4" plywood over 2x6 T&G decking. The decking spans 3 ft to 6x10 purlins. It seems to me that I can use the plywood diaphragm values for a blocked diaphragm assuming nail size (short enough to not protrude clear through the decking) and penetration is taken into account in the diaphragm values. I think this is the case as all the panel edges are backed up with the decking so the diaphragm can be considered “blocked” and the 2x6 decking will span the 3 ft.
