Effect of Diaphragm Stiffness on Lateral-Load Distribution

Total Views : 873 

Total Views : 873  The following Figure illustrates the effect of diaphragm stiffness on the distribution of lateral loads to the lateral-load-resisting elements. The building shown in the figure has three walls of equal lateral stiffness. If the diaphragm is essentially rigid in-plane and there is no torsion, all three walls…
