I am working on a wood framed 2 story commercial building in a high seismic area. I need an interior shear wall line but only have one 10'-0" long shear wall. However, there is some additional wall I can use for shear but it is at a 45 degree angle. I can use just the component length in that direction for the wall and it will really help out, however, how do I detail the drag forces going through the rest of the building? If my wall angles do I provide collectors at both ends, in the middle only the far end? Maybe a partial collector with blocking and strap for the projected length and then a collector on the other end? The seismic loads are killing me where I have to have a shear wall in the middle of the building. I have attached a pdf of the roof framing plan to illustrate what I am talking about. I will have a similar condition in the longitudinal direction on the front of the building. I can't get the shear walls to work taking the shear out to each end because of lack of shear on the bottom floors.
PCB design is a purposeful process. In essence, every PCB design is a complex puzzle that requires a designer to incorporate critical components and tight schematics into a piece of technology that is governed by rules, constraints and industry standards. Download Now
