[SEAOC] ????metal deck conn for out of plane loading????

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
     Does anyone know of a source on design of deck fasteners for out of 
     plane (uplift) loading?
     
     Anyone has any recommendations on use of puddle welds (somewhat 
     unreliable quality) vs mechanical attachment?
     
     My situation: roof decking must be designed for a net uplift in the 
     range of 36 to 86 psf.
     
     Thanks for any responce.
     
     Ghassem.
