Strength requirements for shear diaphragms used for stability bracing of steel beams
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2017-04)
Light-gauge metal sheeting is often used in steel building and bridge industries as concrete deck formwork. Besides providing support to the fresh concrete, the sheeting acts as a shear diaphragm and provides continuous ...
Lateral stiffness of steel bridge I-girders braced by metal deck forms
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2009)
The lateral-torsional buckling capacity of steel bridge girders is often increased by incorporating bracing along the girder length. Permanent metal deck forms (PMDF) that are used to support the wet concrete deck during ...
Stiffness and strength of metal bridge deck forms
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2007)
Light gauge metal sheeting is often utilized in the building and bridge industries for concrete formwork. Although the in-plane stiffness and strength of the metal forms are commonly relied upon for stability bracing in ...
