That would work. I think the Steel Deck Institute has a lot of LRFD deck design information that you could use, though. They're at .

Also, try with a manufacturer like Bouras Industries: . I know from their add in AISC's Modern Steel Construction that they have LRFD load tables for steel deck.

Subject: [StrucTX] LRFD for SDI Diaphragm Design?

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

Any comments?
