7.1.3 Reinforcing at Openings
There is reinforcing around all diaphragm openings larger than 50 percent of the building width in either major plan dimension.
For conforming buildings, the evaluator may consider this condition as mitigated, and no calculations are necessary. The deficiency is in the strength of the diaphragm in the vicinity of the openings. Check the adequacy of the diaphragm to transfer stresses around the opening.
