Default Re: Stud wall

Designing stud walls is simple just consider them as a series of posts

I work out the vertical load per metre then work out the load per stud so that's load per metre x stud centres

So looking at say 47 x 97 stud the height would be actual height (1.0L) for the 97 depth and then maybe 0.5L for the 47 width as there would be noggins between the studs

Hope this helps

Regards
