Design values for light gauge steel framed shear walls
The purpose of this experimental research program was to investigate the behavior of light gauge steel framed shear walls sheathed with plywood, oriented strand board (OSB), and gypsum wallboard (GWB). To accomplish this a total of 48 tests were completed, 42 of which are reported here. Toe overall scope of the program is described in the following section.
