Wood shear wall design (NDS)

Would you like to help us improve the wood design features in Tekla Structural Designer and Tekla Tedds? Please take this short survey to tell us what you need from your wood design software.

This video demonstrates the Tekla Tedds Wood shear wall design calculation. This calculation determines the capacity of wood structural panel and lumber sheathed shear walls acting as elements of a lateral force resisting system in accordance with the design provision contained within the ANSI/AF&PA Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic. It allows both allowable stress design (ASD) and load resistance factor design (LRFD) using either the segmented or perforated shear wall design methods.
