Abstract

Cold-formed steel framed shear wall sheathed with corrugated steel sheets is a promising shear wall system for low- and mid-rise constructions at high wind and seismic zones due to its advantages of non-combustibility, high shear strength, and high shear stiffness. A lot of work has been done on this subject. However, all the previous work is focused on the wall panel levels and more research work is needed on the entire building systems. The objective of this paper is to investigate the response of a cold-formed steel framed building with corrugated sheet sheathing subjected to earthquake excitation primarily through nonlinear time history analysis employing the incremental dynamic analysis (IDA) framework. High fidelity models were simulated in OpenSees program. The detailed modeling information and system assessment are presented in this paper.

Simulating the Seismic Performance of Cold-Formed Steel Framed Buildings using Corrugated Sheet Shear Walls

Cold-formed steel framed shear wall sheathed with corrugated steel sheets is a promising shear wall system for low- and mid-rise constructions at high wind and seismic zones due to its advantages of non-combustibility, high shear strength, and high shear stiffness.
