Cyclic performance and characterization of steel deck connections
MetadataShow full item record
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 program is a task within a larger effort, i.e. “Advancing Seismic Provisions for Steel Diaphragm in Rigid Wall-Flexible Diaphragm Buildings”. The object of the larger effort is to validate alternative seismic design provisions for conventionally designed steel diaphragms in RWFD buildings.
