Deflection of Wood Studs for Brick

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Trying to determine the deflection requirements for wood studs backing brick
veneer.  I know the BIA tech reports recommend L/600 for steel studs backing
brick veneer but the tech note for wood studs is silent.  Also, ACI 530
prescribes requirements for horizontal members supporting brick to be l/600
or 0.3 inch but nothing on this subject.  Based on the IBC 2006 I can use
l/240 for brittle finishes which seems a bit loose. Am I missing something
here?
