Edge of a Diaphragm. Typically along eave blocking and the trusses or rafters in line with the gable-end walls for a roof diaphragm, the end and rim joists fir a floor diaphragm and the end-posts and top and bottom members of a shear wall
top or bottom member of a truss, also used to describe the member along a diaphragm boundary
Structural member that connects a diaphragm to a shear wall in order to gather lateral forces spread throughout the diaphragm and deliver them to the shear wall.
a short wood framed member built on top of the foundation to support the first floor level
Large area of sheathing (floor, roof, shear wall - could be vertical or horizontal)
EDGES MUST HAVE BOUNDARY MEMBERS and the sheathing panels must connect to these members and to framing members to transfer forces across the panel joints
two horizontal framing members at the top of a wall, typicaly spliced or lapped to give continuity or tie wall sections together
essentially the same as a collector- connects a diaphragm to a shear wall
same as DRAG STRUT/COLLECTOR
though it could also mean a member that transmits force from one part of the structure to the other without collecting any force along the way
shear panels 4 egdes
2 are ends
2 are sides

Horizontal member that spans across an opening in a way (typically over a doorway)
similar to tie-down. a device used to keep the end of a shear wall from lifting up

horizontal framing member at the base of a wall, typically when attached to a wood-framed floor platform below
concrete or masonry wall built on top of a footing and extending above the ground to support wood framing
vertical wall framing member
a device used to keep the end of a shear wall from lifting up aka "hold-down"
a stud adjacent to an opening in a wall. Support the header over an opening in a wall and do not extend ll the way up to the top plate
horizontal framing member at the top of a wall (aka double plate)
