Re: Strenth and Stiffness of 1x diagonal floor sheathing??

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bill-

I don't have ready access to it  (it stored away in my files somewhere)  but the "ABK" report has test data on the performance of diagonal 1x sheathing.   Maybe I can dig it up or pulse one of my other sources.

Additionally Gerry Pardoen & I (with others) did some large (16 x 20 or so) redwood diagonally sheathed diaphragms.  I don't think I have a copy of the report.  But maybe Gerry has access to it.



cheers

I'm working on an existing building built in Orange County around 1920 (or so). I need to determine the strength and stiffness of the floor diaphragm.

 

I know that the four term APA equation probably doesn't apply, but if not that, then what should I use instead?

 

TIA,
