Diaphragm ratio for rigid diaphragm

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

I have a garage with a concrete deck at the roof.  The garage dimensions are 24’x42’ with a 20’ opening centered at one of the 24’ end walls.  Is there a ratio limit for a rigid diaphragm which is basically open ended(the center of rigidity is within the back 24’ wall)?  This one is 1.75:1 transferring wind load to the back 24’ long wall.

Thanks,

Joe
