Abstract

This paper presents the results of an experimental full scale test program for determining design information for shear wall diaphragms constructed of steel studs and gypsum wallboard with different aspect ratios. Wall construction used is representative of the type of construction commonly used for interior wall partitions. Testing is performed in accordance with- ASTM E 564 - 76.

Experimental Investigation of Steel Stud Shear Wall Diaphragms

This paper presents the results of an experimental full scale test program for determining design information for shear wall diaphragms constructed of steel studs and gypsum wallboard with different aspect ratios. Wall construction used is representative of the type of construction commonly used for interior wall partitions. Testing is performed in accordance with- ASTM E 564 - 76.
