In light-framed construction, diagonal X-braced walls can provide excellent lateral resistance in both high-wind and high seismic conditions. This presentation discusses the mechanics of x-braced systems, why they are different from code-defined shear walls, what special detailing is required in high seismic areas, how to calculate x-brace deflection, and how important it is (or isn’t) to have tight straps. Pictures of field examples are included, as well as design examples for wind, seismic, and deflection calculations.
