Question #01. A wood residence has a wood structural panel roof diaphragm (which is shown in plan view below). Two retail stores are separated by a common wood shear wall, parallel to the north-south lateral loading. The height of the building is 14 feet. The roof diaphragm is adequately anchored to the shear wall. Assume ρ = 1.0. Determine the roof diaphragm shear force along line 3. A. 3,800 lb f . B. 5,600 lb f . C. 7,500 lb f . D. 9,000 lb f .

Question #02. A wood residence has a wood structural panel roof diaphragm (which is shown in plan view below). Two retail stores are separated by a common wood shear wall, parallel to the north-south lateral loading. The height of the building is 14 feet. The roof diaphragm is adequately anchored to the shear wall. Assume ρ = 1.0). Along line X between lines 1 and 2, determine the maximum diaphragm chord force in the chord member. A. 750 lbf . B. 1,200 lbf . C. 2,300 lbf . D. 4,700 lbf .

Question #03. A wood residence has a wood structural panel roof diaphragm (which is shown in plan view below). Two retail stores are separated by a common wood shear wall, parallel to the north-south lateral loading. The height of the building is 14 feet. The roof diaphragm is adequately anchored to the shear wall. Assume ρ = 1.0). Determine the diaphragm chord force at the intersection of lines Y and 1. A. 0 lbf . B. 290 lbf . C. 600 lbf . D. 1,200 lbf .

Answer to #03. A. Chords are the boundary members of a diaphragm, and are perpendicular to the direction of the lateral load. Chords are designed to carry moments and provide all the resistance to the flexural stresses. Chord forces at the chord ends are zero.
