RE: Wood Shear Wall Top Plate Shear Transfer

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi David,
 
Double top plate collector continuous over the wall and extending the full length of the building.

Is the collector continuous over the wall?  If "collector" is discontinuous (i.e. blocking o/ wall), you still need a tension strap for force transfer, but connectors from blocks to top plate.  what are you asking?
