Coupled Timber Shear Walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm looking at trying to use a timber framed portal as a coupled shear wall.
The leg and "coupling beam" are of similar dimensions.


The standard deflection formulae are for single cantilevered shear walls.


Does anyone have (or can direct me to) a deflection equation for coupled
timber shear walls?
