Compression Web: A member of a truss system which connects the bottom and top chords and which provides downward support. Theoretical models that predict connector performance or rotational stiffness are necessary to improve connector design and to alleviate the need for extensive testing. Experimental and theoretical investigations of the stiffness of metal-plate connected, tension-splice wood truss joints were conducted.

The strengths for 24 trusses tested outside of roof assem- blies are compared with the strengths predicted by the semi- rigid model. These trusses were made from southern pine no 2 and tested at the FPL by Wolfe et al. (). The failedFile Size: 1MB.

As part of a roof framing system, light-frame wood trusses often require lateral bracing to reduce the effective length for flexural buckling of compression web members.

This observational research investigates the design requirements for discrete compression web bracing intended to Cited by: 5. Light-frame wood roof trusses often require lateral bracing to reduce the effective length of compression web members for buckling purposes.

Three simple analysis methods were compared in a physical test program to determine if any could adequately predict required brace strength and stiffness.

The Truss-Framed System (TFS) is a new light-frame wood construction concept that inte­ grates customary construction components-roof trusses, floor trusses, and wall studs--into unitized frames.

It offers a new alternative in prefabrication and field assembly. Bracing Design • Provides a “prescriptive” approach for compression side bracing: – 3/8 inch wood structural sheathing or 9/16” x ” thickness steel deck – attached with No. 8 screws at 12 inches o.c.

Abstract: The objective of this research was to use a three-dimensional (3D) analysis method to evaluate "system effects" in light-frame roof truss assemblies. Lightweight truss construction consists of top and bottom members that run parallel.

These are referred to as chords and are made of wood. These chords are cross -connected for support by wood. Design of Wood Framing General This chapter addresses elements of above-grade structural systems in residential construction.

a nonlinear finite element program for analysis of metal plate connected wood. This thesis describes a study on the stability capacity and lateral bracing force of wood beam-columns and metal plate connected (MPC) wood truss assemblies. A user-friendly computer program, SATA, was developed based on the finite element method (FEM).

The program can be used to perform three-dimensional nonlinear structural analyses by using the Newton-Raphson and arc-length methods. The Cited by: 4. Chapter 9 STRUCTURAL CONCEPT FOR LIGHT GAUGE STEEL FRAME SYSTEM As such, the light gauge steel frame system is an attractive alternative for use in landed properties.

WOOD BUILDING. SYSTEMS: A GLOSSARY. The terms for different types of wood building systems can be confusing, and the way they are used also varies slightly in different parts of the world.

Following is a brief glossary of terms as they are used in this course: LIGHT-FRAME WOOD. The proposed light-frame structure comprises steel columns for vertical loads and an innovative bracing system to efficiently resist seismic actions. This seismic force resisting system consists of a light timber frame braced with an Oriented Strand Board (OSB) sheet and an external technoprene plaster-infilled slab.
