Out-of-plane anchorage

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]



There used to be a requirement that wood elements resisting out-of-plane forces from CMU or concrete walls had to be a minimum of 2-1/2” thick.  This does not seem to be a part of ASCE 7-05.  Can someone please confirm that this requirement does not exist in the ASCE 7-05?  This requirement is in the 2001 California Building Code, so it might never have been in the ASCE, but I just want to check.
