Re: GSBN: Wind loads and racking



Hey all,

This discussion of through-tieing is very interesting.
Does anybody think it's a feasible option to simply "sew"
baling twine through the wall in a grid pattern even if a
mesh isn't being used? Having the twine well embedded in
the plaster on either side of the wall is essentially all
that's happening when we tie a mesh through the wall, so
if the mesh itself is not deemed to be required in a given
setting (ie, non seismic conditions), would the meshless
sewing provide the necessary bond between skins?
