Project

Corrugated Sheet Steel Shear Walls

Research purpose

To develop a design procedure for the Corrugated Sheet Steel Shear Wall (CSSSW) lateral bracing system for inclusion into the ASCE-7 code document. The proposed lateral bracing system utilizes a low profile metal deck as sheathing fastened to light-framed cold-formed steel framing using screws. The CSSSW is the key element of a new lateral bracing system for use with light-framed, cold-formed steel buildings. The lateral load resistance of this structural element originates with the shear strength of the corrugated sheet steel and the shear resistance of the screws connecting the sheeting to the cold-formed steel framing.
