I've been asked to look at a design for a residential wood framed building that is configured in a U shape with straight legs on approximately a 12.5d angle out from center. Middle section between the legs is approx 18' long with legs at about 24' long. middle section has a 16' opening for doors and current design calls for a moment frame tied to concrete piers. I'm familiar with typical diaphragm and shear wall design but I'm not sure about how to proceed with this configuration. Is there a design reference that can help take the geometry into account? I'm figuring I'll work around the building but I thought having an interior wall changes the approach.
Any help would be appreciated.
