Re: High shear diaphragm value

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Horizontal (820 with 19/32 & 10's @ 3) or vertical diaphragm?

In any case check out apawood.org pubs, they have very good info on diaphragms, real test results as well as design examples

If you're trying to get that much out of a site built shear wall...you'll probably have to go double sided (you only get 870 with 15/32 & 10d's @ 2 ...single sided)

OR

use a pre-fab shear like

www.shearmax.com/

Their website is very comprehensive but a little daunting

http://shearmax.com/library/ENGARCHBROSHUREVMAY012006.pdf

Ref Table 2 looks like it will give you the info you need....you're asking for 950 plf but how many feet? 2'? 3'? 4'? ie total load required

It possible to embed one or two of  these in stud wall & give you what you need.

cheers
Bob

For what?  Steel or wood?  If wood, look at: http://www.icc-es.org/reports/pdf_files/UBC/1952.pdf .
