Flexural Strength of Exterior Metal Building Wall Assemblies with Rigid Insulation
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 2011-08-01)
The goal of this research study is to observe and quantify the influence of rigid board insulation on through-fastened girt capacity. Rotational restraint tests are performed to study local rotational stiffness at the ...
Vehicular Access Doors under Hurricane Force Wind Pressure: Experiments to Study Jamb Behavior
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 2012-03-01)
In August of 2009, two 10 ft by 10 ft DBCI 5000 vehicular access doors were tested with a simulated hurricane force wind pressure at the DBCI in Douglasville, GA (Gao and Moen 2009). After evaluating the results from this ...
Experimental Evaluation of a Vehicular Access Door Subjected to Hurricane Force Wind Pressures
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 2009-11-01)
This report presents findings on the behavior of a typical rolling sheet vehicular access door under a hurricane force wind pressure. The objectives are to quantify the structural behavior of a rolling sheet vehicular ...
