Resolving Wood Shear Wall Design Puzzles with Force Transfer Around Openings
This presentation provides an overview of the Force Transfer Around Openings (FTAO) shear wall design approach, recent research in this area, and a side-by-side comparison of design results between segmented, perforated, and FTAO design methods. A new APA System Report, SR-105: Design for Force Transfer Around Openings, guides users on the application of this methodology to provide structurally sound and efficient shear wall systems.  This presentation also provides insight into the creation of the System Report, examples of its application, and how to best utilize this method in wood framed shear wall design.  The report is based on a joint research project of APA – The Engineered Wood Association, University of British Columbia (UBC), and USDA Forest Products Laboratory that examined variations of shear walls with code-allowable openings.  The study evaluated internal forces generated during testing and assessed the effects of opening sizes, full-height pier sizes, and different construction techniques, including the segmented, perforated, and FTAO methods. Asymmetric piers, multiple openings, and C-shaped sheathing were investigated and rational design methodologies in accordance with the International Building Code have been created.
