This example serves as a demonstration of the diaphragm constraint. The application is shown on the two-storeyed structure. The structure is loaded by means of lateral forces according to the Figure 1. Determine the maximum deflection of the structure ux in the direction of loading forces using both the diaphragm constraint and the plate model of the floor.
