When you change the material in a wall, are you changing the structure or are you changing the wall type parameters? Which would the the correct textbook answer to this one?

You are changing the wall type parameters. Structure relates to how the wall functions analytically/structurally.

One more thing - if you change the material on a stacked wall, do you change the type of the stacked wall, or the type of the assembled subwall?

 

Tks

Not in front of a PC right now but just try it. If you change either one the other will follow suite.

After all, it is the same wall type.

I'm not sure I'm getting your ?. Do you mean 2 or more walls atop each other? See attached for my explanation.

A clearer question would help.

"When you change the material in a wall...." <<< Meaning what?

  1. Changing the definition of a material used in a wall?
  2. Changing which material is used in a component of a wall?

"...are you changing the structure or are you changing the wall type parameters?"

  1. Changing the material definition will alter how a wall looks but it is not a change of wall type parameters.
  2. Changing a component in the wall by assigning a different material is altering the wall type properties.
