Abstract

The Steel Deck Institute (SDI) has released the new and long awaited 4th Edition of the Diaphragm Design Manual (DDM04). This new edition complies with the requirements of the ANSI/AISI S310-13 North American Standard for the Design of Profiled Steel Diaphragm Panels. At 408 pages, the 4th Edition is larger than its predecessor and will be an invaluable resource to structural designers because of the background information, design examples, and extensive load tables.

The First Edition of the DDM, published in 1981, was authored by Dr. Larry Luttrell, P.E., the Technical Advisor to the SDI. The diaphragm design method developed by Dr. Luttrell was based on a rational analytical model of the deck panels and the support and side-lap fasteners, which was substantiated by extensive testing. The Second Edition of the DDM, published in 1995, added a design method and design tables for floor deck diaphragms. A Third Edition was published in 2004. The new Fourth Edition is also authored by Dr. Luttrell, with the assistance of John Mattingly, P.E.; Walter Schultz, P.E., and Dr. Thomas Sputo, P.E., S.E..
