Development of Steel Deck Diaphragm Seismic Design Provisions for ASCE 41/AISC 342
The objective of this report is to provide the background work for the development of recommended seismic design provisions for steel deck diaphragms utilizing ASCE 41 / AISC 342. The current (2017) edition of ASCE 41 for ...
Experimental Study on the in-plane behavior of standing seam roof assembly and its use in lateral bracing of rafters
The standing seam roof (SSR) system is the most commonly used roof system for metal buildings due to its superior durability, water tightness, and energy efficiency. In this type of system, SSR panels attach to Z-shaped ...
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 ...
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 ...
