Re: Sharing Holdowns @ Corners

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Both directions or just 42% more than one direction? I.e. - 2*arcsin(45), a perfectly aligned load resolved into the orthogonal directions producing a maximal summed reaction. That is, of course, assuming you don't expect a code event to act at full magnitude in both orthogonal directions simultaneously.

Yes it can be done.  Just make sure the hold down has enough capacity to support the uplift from both directions if applicable.

Subject: Sharing Holdowns @ Corners

Is it permissible to share a single holdown at a corner where 2 shear walls intersect?  I was thinking of configuring the corner studs to be nailed together as a built up post and using one holdown.  Is this commonly done?  Any specific recommendations of how to share a holdown?  I don’t find any details about this in anchor catalog.
