Steel Deck Diaphragm and Cold-Formed Member Design 

Greg Bundy, P.E., Simpson Strong-Tie

Presentation 1:  SDI Diaphragm Design Manual – 4th Edition (1.0 PDH): 

The 4th edition of the manual (DDM04) was published in 2015 and is referenced in the 2018 IBC.  This presentation focuses in on DDM04 and the changes between it and the previous version of the Diaphragm Design Manual (DDM03).  Fasteners in DDM04 include generic welds and mechanical fasteners in accordance with the strength and flexibility provisions of AISI S310.  DDM04 also includes proprietary screws and power actuated fasteners calculated in accordance with DDM03.  The use of these previous provisions is permitted by AISI S310 as alternate fasteners with performance substantiated by testing. 

Upon completion, the attendee will have a general knowledge of how requirements from DDM04 affect the design of steel deck diaphragms.



Presentation 2: Cold Formed Steel Member Design - Simpson Strong-Tie CFS Designer Software (1.0 PDH)

This presentation is intended for structural engineers interested in learning more about how to design cold-formed steel framing using the Simpson Strong-Tie CFS Designer software.  We will show how the software is easy to use, versatile, and saves time by automating the often-complicated analysis and design procedures of the AISI North American Specification (S100) and sundry AISI referenced standards.  The program will focus on discussing and solving specific design examples.

Upon completion, attendees will have a better understanding of how to analyze and design cold-formed steel framing using the CFS Designer software.
