Investigating the Capacity and Stiffness of Joints used in Gypsum Wallboard Sheathed Light-Frame Wood Shearwalls

Alexandre Lafontaine
The provisions to determine the deflection of gypsum wallboard (GWB) sheathed shearwalls available in the Canadian and American standards are limited to nailed shearwalls and are rudimentary compared to the wood based sheathing equations. There is currently no fastener slip model for the GWB sheathed shearwalls that are fastened with GWB screws. A main goal of this study is to improve the existing equations for nailed GWB sheathed shearwalls and develop a suitable analytical expression...
