When space is tight and concrete shear walls are demanding large amounts of floor area, steel plate shear walls can play a major role in the design of a building. Steel plate shear walls (SPSW) are thin plates located between columns that save valuable floor space in lieu of using thick concrete shear walls.
Gusset Plates, Brackets and Saddles Structural Wood Gusset Plates, Brackets and Saddles SWC fabricates most all gusset plates from A36 plate. These are typically flat, 2-dimensional shapes, cut to conform with truss members. Typical plates are 1/4 thick, but larger trusses may require 3/8, 1/2 or larger plate, which we can supply.
The Everbilt 2 in. Mending Plates (4-Pack) The Everbilt 2 in. Mending Plates (4-Pack) are the ideal reinforcements for flat surface joints, seams or cracks. A special countersunk, 2-hole design allows flat-head screws to sit flush with the material. Featuring a durable zinc-plated, steel construction, this plate is
Metal Straps - Building Hardware - The Home DepotH2.5A 18-Gauge ZMAX Galvanized Hurricane Tie Simpson Strong-Tie hurricane ties are designed Simpson Strong-Tie hurricane ties are designed to resist high winds and seismic forces by positively connecting trusses/rafters to the top of wall of the structure. These ties connect both solid-sawn and engineered lumber across a wide range of applications.
Metal tie-rods and anchor plates in old buildings structuralThroughout history metal tie-rods and anchor plates have been installed to deal with structural problems, reinforce the masonry structure, and absorb the outward pressure. In the 13th16th centuries, arches, vaults and domes were made by inserting
A steel plate shear wall (SPSW) (a.k.a. special plate steel wall) is a lateral load resisting system consisting of vertical steel plate infills connected to the surrounding beams and columns and installed in one or more bays along the full height of the structure to form a cantilever wall (Figure 1). SPSWs subjected to cyclic inelastic deformations
Steel Building Glossary of Terms for Steel Building KitsGlossary:Terminology Commonly Used in the Metal Building Industry. Basic Terms and Descriptions:Accessory:A building product which supplements a basic solid panel building such as a door, window, light transmitting panel, roof vent, cupola, soffit, wainscot, overhang, etc. Agricultural Building:A structure designed and constructed to house farm implements, hay, grain, poultry, livestock
Steel Plate Grades - Continental Steel & Tube CompanyASTM A36 PLATE STEEL is a structural quality product designed for use in welded, bolted, or riveted fabrications such as oil rigs, buildings and bridges. Produced with a min. yield of 36,000 psi, A36 plate can be used in the construction of a variety of lightweight structures and equipment where good welding properties are important.
Steel plate shear walls (SPSWs) are investigated in this dissertation, for use in retrofit and new design as a lateral force resisting system in building structures. Limits for sizing (for moment strength) of anchor beams, at the upper and lowermost levels of a multi-story SPSW frame, are introduced and developed.
