Jake, My guess, since I don’t have a copy
of ASCE 705 or 2006 IBC yet, is that if you remove one of 4 walls, it would
result in a 33% reduction in strength. Less redundant system, hence
higher value of rho = 1.3. WRT story height, wouldn’t the
height h be the story height, or the height at which the wall is braced
laterally and/or the height at which there would be lateral load being transferred
to the wall? Congrats on the “SE.” Haven’t
seen that until now. David A.
