I normally input cracked factor 0.7 for concrete shear wall design. But just asking, for wind service drift check, is that possible to use 1.0 since the wall is not supposed to crack as in seismic ultimate stage? I know the best way is to check tension stress under load, did anybody have have experence for high-rise under wind load: does shearwall crack? Thank you.
