Does anyone know where I can find shear design values for light-gauge shear walls for plywood sheathing that is not Structural 1. AISI 213 Cold-Formed Steel Framing - Lateral Design Table C2.1-1 and C2.1-3 only have design values for 15/32" structural 1 grade plywood. It does not provide values for rated plywood (Non Structural 1 plywood). Contractor says he cannot source Structural 1 plywood around here (South East USA). Any help would be appreciated.
