Lateral Design Considerations for Mid-Rise Structures

Wed, Jun 7, 2017 12:00 PM CDT

This presentation willfocus on important engineering considerations related to the lateral design of multi-storywood buildings. Implementation of a well-considered design requires an understandingof diaphragm and shear wall flexibility and their effects on the horizontaldistribution of forces through the structure. In mid-rise/multi-familybuildings, corridor-only shear walls are becoming popular as a way to eliminateexterior shear walls. The design issues this creates will be addressed, as willthe unique load distribution and flexibility considerations associated withtall shear walls.
