Reports from the Team

Reports from the Thin-walled Structures Group, including all past project reports, are managed by CFSRC and housed at DSPACE in the Johns Hopkins library system. The DSPACE repository is fully searchable and provides an abstract and graphical representation for each report – as well as full PDFs and supporting information.

The reports cover 20+ years of research on thin-walled structures including extensive work on cold-formed steel structures. Included in the repository is hard to find comprehensive summaries on distortional buckling, complete data sets on experiments such as the rotational restraint provided by sheathing to cold-formed steel members, complete design of the CFS-NEES building, comprehensive work on sheathing braced design for members, complete data and response for seismic testing of the CFS-NEES building, and extensive literature on steel deck diaphragms (e.g. this database), and much much more.
