SDII Building Archetype Design v1.0
Building archetypes are fundamental to exploring and demonstrating the seismic behavior of modern structures. No suitable archetypes or prototypes exist in the open literature that focus on steel deck diaphragms for ...
Seismic Behavior of Steel BRBF Buildings Including Consideration of Diaphragm Inelasticity
Compared to vertical elements of a building’s seismic force resisting systems, our understanding of the horizontal elements, i.e. the diaphragms, is grossly lacking. Recent research showed that diaphragm design forces that ...
Cyclic Performance of Steel Sheet Connections for CFS framed Steel Sheet Sheathed Shear Walls
The main objective of this research is to study fastener-level force-deformation response appropriate for standard cold-formed steel (CFS) framed steel sheet sheathed shear walls under cyclic loads. Recently completed ...
Design of Metal Building Roof Purlins Including System Reliability Effects
This report provides a framework to incorporate structural system reliability effects in the design of roof purlins in a typical metal building. Today every roof purlin is considered as a separate component and the effect ...
Cyclic performance and characterization of steel deck connections
(NBM Technologies, 2017-12-14)
The objective of this report is to provide cyclic connection test results essential to 3D building models required for performing P695 evaluation studies for Rigid Wall-Flexible Diaphragm (RWFD) Buildings. This experimental ...
Seismic Behavior of Steel SCBF Buildings Including Consideration of Diaphragm Inelasticity
This report provides a summary of nonlinear response history analyses conducted on a three- dimensional model of a series of steel buildings with special concentric braced frames (SCBFs). The models are conducted in OpenSees ...
