r compression tension 1000 lbs MOMENT compression tension The shears at the center of the panel cancel out. However, the tension and
compression forces create a couple which is equal to a moment. This is identical to a tall building that bends under wind and seismic loads. In a tall building, the columns on the
windward side may go into tension, and
the columns on the leeward side have an
increase of compression. This is the same
model we just saw for the stud wall.
Because the tall building is subject to this
force couple, it deflects primarily in flexu...
