I have never designed perforated shearwalls before and I am reviewing section 2305.3 of the 2007 CBC and the 2005 AWC design examples. Do understand correctly that a perforated shear wall meeting the requirements and subject to adjustment factors, can be designed with only end wall holdowns and no force transfer detailing around openings?
