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 ...
Strength and stiffness of metal building rod brace anchor connections
Rod or cable bracing is often provided in metal buildings to develop lateral resistance against wind or seismic loads in the ‘long’ direction of the building, i.e., in the direction perpendicular to the primary frames. ...
Characterizing the load-deformation behavior of steel deck diaphragms using past test data
Recent research has identified that current code level seismic demands used for diaphragm design are considerably lower than demands in real structures during a seismic event. However, historical data has shown that steel ...
Steel Deck Diaphragm Test Database V1.0
From the 1950’s to the present, a substantial number of large-scale tests have been conducted on steel deck diaphragms or concrete on metal deck diaphragms. The data, papers and reports for these tests are located in ...
In-plane shear stiffness of bare steel deck through shell finite element models
The objective of this report is to explore the in-plane elastic shear stiffness of bare steel deck diaphragms through high fidelity shell finite element modeling. Profiled steel panels, i.e, metal deck, often serve as a ...
