Story shear for ramps

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Greetings,

I am designing a parking garage with ramps in both directions (dog-legged). How do I determine my diaphragm extents? Is it okay to take half the weight of the ramp to the story above and below to calculate story shears?
 
Thanks
Anantha
