Transverse forces:

Shear to wall = mezzanine diaphragm shear x relative rigidity

6682

= 4.66kips (20.7 KN)

Shear to A1-A2 & I1-I2 = (7.89kips)

6682 + 4648

4648

= 3.24kips (14.4KN)

Shear to B1-B2 & H1-H2 = (7.89kips)

6682 + 4648

The unit shear force in the diaphragm, v, will be the maximum at the exterior walls.

v = 4.66 kips / 40'= 116 plf (1.69 KN/m)

Longitudinal forces:

Shear to each braced frame = mezzanine diaphragm shear

Shear to each braced frame = (1/2)(11.87kips) = 5.94 kips (26.4 KN)

The unit diaphragm shear , v =(5.94kips)/20'= 297 plf (4.33 KN/m)
