Mark,

       We do this in Canada also.

Regards,

We use metal decking all the time without topping for roof diaphragms. And
we are in seismic zone 4 (or whatever it's called now [I am dating myself]).
This is the case for medium rise multi-story office buildings. For
warehouses and two-story tiltups we typically use a plywood roof diaphragm.

Actually, I would like to expand this discussion to all
design and construction practices that vary by region.

With the advent of the IBC, does steel connection design vary
as much as it used to across the US, i.e. design of seismic
connections by the engineer (west coast) vs fabricator design
of connections (east coast)?

Barry - are you saying that metal roof decking alone (without concrete
topping) is not commonly used for diaphragm design in California?

I'd like to add a regional practice to the
discussion.....metal decking.

Coming from California where most metal decking is filled
with concrete, I was indeed the odd duck in wanting to do
this for roof diaphragms in Utah.
Perhaps I'm overly naive on this issue, but the partially
grouted walls outside of high seismic areas has me thinking...
