Main description

A Complete Guide to Solving Lateral Load Path Problems

The Analysis of Irregular Shaped Structures: Diaphragms and Shear Walls explains how to calculate the forces to be transferred across multiple discontinuities and reflect the design requirements on construction documents. Step-by-step examples offer progressive coverage, from basic to very advanced illustrations of load paths in complicated structures. The book is based on the 2009 International Building Code, ASCE/SEI 7-05, the 2005 Edition of the National Design Specification for Wood Construction, and the 2008 Edition of the Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic (SDPWS-08).

COVERAGE INCLUDES:

  • Code sections and analysis
  • Diaphragm basics
  • Diaphragms with end horizontal offsets
  • Diaphragms with intermediate offsets
  • Diaphragms with openings
  • Open front and cantilever diaphragms
  • Diaphragms with vertical offsets
  • Complex diaphragms with combined openings and offsets
  • Standard shear walls
  • Shear walls with openings
  • Discontinous shear walls
  • Horizontally offset shear walls
  • The portal frame
  • Rigid moment-resisting frame walls--the frame method of analysis
