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 ...
Cyclic behavior of steel I-beams modified by a welded haunch and reinforced with GFRP
(Techno Press, 2009)
Flange and web local buckling in beam plastic hinge regions of steel moment frames can prevent beam-column connections from achieving adequate plastic rotations under earthquake-induced forces. Reducing the flange-web ...
Mechanical behavior of polypropylene-based honeycomb-core composite sandwich structures
(SAGE Publications, 2010-05)
This article presents results from an experimental study, investigating the effects of core thickness on the mechanical properties of composite sandwich structures with polypropylene(PP)-based honeycomb core and glass ...
Buckling behavior of steel bridge I-girders braced by permanent metal deck forms
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2012-07)
Permanent metal deck forms (PMDFs) are often used in the bridge industry to support wet concrete and other loads during construction. Although metal formwork in the building industry is routinely relied on for stability ...
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 ...
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 ...
