It is common for the building code and related standards to require analysis and detailing for various aspects of design without providing guidance on approach. An example is how to address diaphragm openings that occur every day in wood-frame building design. When do openings require detailed analysis? What if an opening exists at one edge/end of the diaphragm? Through live calculation examples, this presentation will help engineers and structural designers determine when detailed analysis is necessary, introduce and compare two methods of analysis, and translate the analysis into practical detailing considerations.
