Thanks for the clarification- I'm beginning t put it all together now and I do see that the 2008 edition of the SDPWS still allows perforated and shear transfer around openings plywood shear walls plus the table of the higher aspect ratios above 2:1.
So, the only thing I cannot resolve is: Where in the '09 IBC/'10 CBC does it reference using the 2008 SDPWS for the design of such types of walls?
Thanks in advance,

As noted, most of the shear wall and diaphragm provisions in Chapter 23 of the 2009 IBC have been replaced with a reference to the 2008 edition of AWC’s Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic, which is available for a “read-only” free download at http://www.awc.org/pdf/2008WindSeismic.pdf as well as for purchase in PDF and hardcopy versions. This was done to avoid duplication of – and conflict with – the provisions in the SPDWS. The 2008 SDPWS covers force-transfer and perforated shear walls in addition to traditional shear walls, so those are still permitted via the reference in Chapter 23.
Updated versions of the ’05 NDS and ’01 WFCM are in their latter stages of development and will be out before the end of the year, in accordance with the special exemption granted to allow certain updated standards to be referenced in the 2012 I-Codes even though their processes were not complete by last year’s final ICC hearings.
(I suspect AWC staff is still recovering from their annual meetings last week; otherwise I’m sure Buddy or someone would have replied by now J.)

Thanks for the info. I knew it was in the '05 NDS, (which I have), but I understand that there is now an '08 NDS, (which I don't have), and the '10 CBC might refrence this newer edition and the perforated/force transfer around openings concept might not be in there. I will try and check this out, and if I determine anything, will post it.
The H/W ratio greater than 2:1 and table 2305.3.4 can be found in the NDS page 22 (Table 4.3.4) of Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic Design of the NDS (One of the small books that came with the 2005 NDS set) as for the perforated shear walls, they are also in the NDS, I don’t know where offhand.

I was under the belief that the '10 CBC, ('09 IBC), was basically the same as the '07 CBC, ('06 IBC), but I noticed in the WOOD chapter, (Chapter 23), that most of Section 2305 has dissapeared, including the requirements for perforated and force transfer around openings plywood shear walls design guides, (i.e. Section 2305.3.5 to 2305.3.11). Also, there use to be a table- Table 2305.3.4 that allowed for plywood shear walls with an H/W greater that 2:1.
Have these design guide lines gone somewhere else or are these types of plywood shear walls no longer allowed??
Thanks in Advance,
