The structural configurations of modern buildings often require complex lateral load paths that incorporate multiple horizontal and vertical offsets, multiple irregularities and fewer lateral-resisting elements. This presentation will provide a review of methods of analysis that can be used to address openings and offsets that now commonly occur in wood-frame diaphragms and shear walls. Topics will include diaphragms with horizontal offsets and large openings and shear walls with offsets and openings.
