Mid-Rise Shear Walls and Diaphragms
Presented by Terry Malone, PE, SE, Sr Technical Director, WoodWorks
This presentation will provide an in-depth look at shear wall and diaphragm design for mid-rise buildings, including those with rectangular, offset and open-front plans. Intended for structural engineers, topics will include issues associated with irregular layouts, detailing for complete lateral load paths, lateral load distribution within a shear wall line, shear wall types, and the effects of tall shear walls. Information aligns with ASCE 7-10 and the American Wood Council’s 2015 Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic.
