LRFD for SDI Diaphragm Design?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Has anyone got any information or insight into designing steel roof deck,
e.g., using Load and Resistance Factor Design principles?

It seeems to me that, for example, since the "factors of safety" are shown
in the design value charts, one ought to be able to come up with the
"ultimate strength", and then it's simply a matter of the proper reduction
factor.

Any comments?
