This manual has evolved from the first edition of the Steel Deck Diaphragm Design Manual (DDM01) and is based on research, testing and analysis done at West Virginia University since 1965. That work, sponsored by the Steel Deck Institute and its member companies, is under the direction of Dr. larry D. Luttrell who is the technical advisor to the Steel Deck Institute. The Institute is very grateful to Dr. Luttrell for his un~iring efforts and continued interest in this project.
