Re: Out of Plane shearwall Loading

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Is it just the shearwalls? That doesn't make sense unless it's a cut and paste of a tilt-up  or cmu building plan check letter.

The out of plan of the walls (combined axial & bending of wall studs) should be checked, but not just shearwalls, but all bearing walls on the perimeter. Often, the really tall walls can't be used as shearwalls due to the plate height and aspect ratio.
