602.10.11.1 Cripple Wall Bracing for Seismic Design Categories D
JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
Where braced wall lines at interior walls are not supported on a continuous foundation below, the adjacent parallel cripple walls, where provided, shall be braced with Method WSP per Section 602.10.2 or Method CS-WSP per Section 602.10.4. The length of bracing required per Table 602.10.1.3(3) for the cripple walls shall be multiplied by 1.5. Where the cripple walls do not have sufficient length to provide the required bracing, the spacing of panel edge fasteners shall be reduced to 4 inches (102 mm) on center and the required bracing length adjusted by 0.7. If the required length can still not be provided, the cripple wall shall be designed in accordance with accepted engineering practice.
