Full scale steel stud framed seismic shake test

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I attended the NASCC conference in Toronto last week. One of the SSRC
seminars included a presentation by Kara Peterman on the Stability Behavior
of Full-Scale Cold-Formed Steel Buildings Under Seismic Excitations. They
built multiple 2 storey office type structures, spanning across 2 shake
tables (50'), with OSB brace panels. They built and tested progressively
completed buildings with OSB infill, drywall and concrete block "real world" 
 floor loading. Then they shook each one .

See her blog and videos.

It all hangs together like nothing happened.
