Technical Note: Design for Force Transfer Around Openings (FTAO)

This technical note presents a rational analysis for applying FTAO to walls with asymmetric piers and walls with multiple openings. It is based upon APA modeling and testing and uses methodology that assists the design professional in solving for the required sheathing, nailing, hold-downs, straps, and maximum deflection. Issued January 2018.
