WEBINAR – Offset Shear Wall Design
December 16, 2015 – 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join at 10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 12 pm Central, 1 pm Eastern
THIS WEBINAR IS SOLD OUT
The complexities of modern day architectural design often necessitate irregular structural layouts with multiple offset roof and floor diaphragms, and walls. Although codes and standards recognize and address these situations, limited commentary and/or examples have been provided that clearly show how these irregularities can be handled. This session will help designers better understand how to analyze offset walls, as well as their implications to the structural design. A continuation of the WoodWorks Offset Diaphragms Design webinar, it focuses on how to conduct a preliminary breakdown of a complex diaphragm to better understand the distribution of forces and assure that complete load paths are being established. Examples will be provided illustrating how to analyze in-plane and out-of-plane offset shear walls that offset diaphragms typically create.
