What is the limit on height of studs in design of perforated or segmented shear wall design?


WFCM 2.1.3.3a allows loadbearing walls to be 20' in height, but requires engineering analysis. WFCM 3.1.3.3a limits prescriptively designed loadbearing wall heights to 10' and non-loadbearing wall heights to 20'.


The following FAQ is based on the presentation of STD312 - Part 3 of the 2012 WFCM Webinar Series: Connections.
