 Summary:
 This paper presents basic concept for analyzing shear wall diaphragms in timber frame structures – platform frame construction. It also provides important instructions and notes on the factors that may have influence on the racking resistance of vertical panels. Providing lateral and torsional stability of high – storey buildings made of timber, in general, is achieved by bracings and / or formation of the roofs, floors and wall diaphragms. The basic requirements that must be met according to ultimate limit state are: static equilibrium and racking resistance of wall panels. For the racking design of timber diaphragms Eurocode 5 provides two simplified methods (Method A and Method B). The goal of the analysis is to show different aspects of modern calculation methods and their effectiveness compared to a traditional approach to the problem.
