The office building used in the NEES-CFS project (Madsen, Nakata, Schafer, 2011) was
chosen as a reference office building in this research. The NEES-CFS building was redesigned by
Zhang (2016) to fit the layout of sheet-out shear wall. According to the Building Structural Design
Narrative (Madsen, Nakata, Schafer, 2011), the 2-story office building was assumed to be located
in Orange County, California which had a plan dimension of 49.75 ft. x 23 ft. Site Class D was
chosen as is typical for sites in the vicinity of this project. For the office occupancy chosen, IE =
1.0 was used. The response modification coefficient, R, and overstrength factor flo were derived
from ASCE 7-10 Table 12.2-1 for light-framed walls systems sheathed with wood structural panels,
and were set as R = 6.5 and fo= 3.0.
For office building archetypes, the quantity and length of shear walls were redesigned
based on the author's test results. The bearing walls of the office building were mainly designed
the on the exterior side, which allowed the flexible arrangement of the partition walls inside the
building. Figure 14-a illustrates the schematic drawing of a 2-story office building model used in
Here’s what’s next.
