This presentation will focus on important engineering considerations related to the lateral design of multi-story wood buildings. Implementation of a well-considered design requires an understanding of diaphragm and shear wall flexibility and their effects on the horizontal distribution of forces through the structure. In mid-rise/multi-family buildings, corridor-only shear walls are becoming popular as a way to eliminate exterior shear walls. The design issues this creates will be addressed, as will the unique load distribution and flexibility considerations associated with tall shear walls.
