Re: Flexible vs. Rigid Diaphram

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Have you ever utilized the SDI (Steel Deck Institute) design manual. It has a chart for flexible, semi-flexible, semi-rigid, and rigid. It also has an example showing how to determine the stiffness value. It is based on spacing of support members, number and spacing of puddle welds, etc. Isn't diaphragm spelled like this?

I am currently working on a building with a 4-1/2" concrete/steel composite
roof, and I was wondering how to tell if the roof I have is a flexible or
rigid diaphram.
