RE: holdown at sherwall intersection

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
It is advisable to use the maximum generated code force of 100% tension from
one direction, and 30% tension from the other direction.  This can be
resisted by 1 holdown.  There is no reason to use 2 holdowns.

Subject: holdown at sherwall intersection



Hello,

The other day i saw a detail that had doble holdown at a bulding corner.
One for the shear wall on the horizontal 
direction and one for the shear in the vertical diraction. Is there a need
to use two tie-downs? wouldn't be adecuate two use only one tie-down at the
corner for the shear wall with the highest uplift demand?. thaks for you
comments.
