RE: Stud Wind Load

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For transverse wind loads, it should be components and cladding pressures.
If the stud is the end post of a shearwall, then the axial load on the end
post will have a component due to MWFRS pressures as the shearwall would be
part of the MWFRS and thus that overturning/compression post load should be
due to the MWFRS pressure.

Interested to hear how others design wood or lt ga wall studs for wind
(multi-family housing).  Do you typically use components and cladding or
MWFRS forces?  The commentary of ASCE 7-05 indicates that wall studs would
be designed with C&C forces but based on these loads (D+W load combination)
we are getting wall studs much heavier than what I have seen.

Thanks

Mike
