Joe –

 

How do you break up a diaphragm up into anything smaller than something that attaches to either a shear resisting element or a transfer diaphragm?

I break the building into smaller diaph if applicable and apply loads per area  A & C or 1E & 1.

Simplified or Low rise methods. Full height of walls.
