Experimental hysteretic cycles obtained for the roof pitch specimen; the graph reports also the values of the initial and equivalent elastic stiffness for the tested diaphragm. After the strengthening of the roof with plywood panels and bottom steel angles, the behaviour of sample DRpar-5s was strongly improved in terms of strength, stiffness and energy dissipation. diaphragm forming of thermoset prepreg could offer a significant reduction in part cost compared to conventional techniques [1]. 2 Diaphragm forming Diaphragm forming is a thermoforming process which was originally developed for forming of thermoplastic composites. In this process a laminate is placed between two foils (diaphragms).File Size: 2MB. Abstract: Composite metal decking has become one of the prevalent forms of Fast Track Construction for multi-story steel buildings. The in-plane stiffness of composite metal decks however is of considerable importance as they typically act as a diaphragm in lateral-load- resisting systems and thus attract a large in-plane shear. Deflection of Light Frame Wood Diaphragms Curtis Earl Abstract This paper takes an in-depth, parametric look at the deflection of wood diaphragms to better understand the diaphragm deflection equation and how it is utilized. This work is intended to assist engineering judgment when calculating mid-span diaphragm deflections in wood structures.

  Nothing in ASCE7, but I did find an old article from March, in the Journal of the Structural Division - "Experimental Evaluation of Composite Action". The general consensus was that diaphragm deflection was decreased with the glue used, Scotch (which I believe is no longer available), but I could not find any quantification of any load per foot with the glue. Wood Structure Design Requirements FIGURE Diaphragm length and width for plan view of open front building. Open-front structures with rigid wood diaphragms resulting in torsional force distribution shall be permitted provided the length, l, of the diaphragm normal to the open side does not exceed 25 ft ( mm), the diaphragm sheathing conforms to File Size: KB.

The objectives of the experimental evaluation program were 1. To test tee, bulb-tee, and box system (Figures ) under different load conditions with the objective of estab­ lishing degree of c m1 site action, influence of diaphragms, characteristics of load distribution, induced strains and stre ses, and load deflection responses. 2. In wood buildings, the diaphragms shall not have expansion joints. Tier 2 Evaluation Procedure: The load path around the discontinuity shall be identified. The diaphragm shall be analyzed for the forces in Section and the adequacy of the elements in the load path shall be Size: 64KB. Timber-concrete composite floor technology is catching on in North America as a high -performance solution for long spans in commercial and industrial buildings. Comprised of timber beams or panels that are joined to a concrete slab by shear connectors, the resulting composite floor can be stiffer and stronger than non-composite alternatives.   This paper presents the results of experimental and numerical studies on the in-plane behavior of a novel timber-steel hybrid floor diaphragm. The proposed diaphragm system consists of C-shaped thin-walled steel members that are used as joists and dimension lumber that is placed on top of the joists to form a timber decking.
