Abstract

A method is presented for the elastic analysis of shear diaphragms composed of standard light gage steel panels. A finite element approach is adopted, in which the mechanical properties of the diaphragm components are incorporated in an analytical model of the assemblage, using the direct stiffness method of matrix structural analysis. Results are compared against experimental values.
