The most common type of light frame construction is _____ framing. Floor and roof trusses are prefabricated _____ commonly used in a platform framed building. Components. A _____ is a structural unit used in floor, wall, and ceiling systems that consists of plywood panels nailed and . Wood light-frame walls typically consist of the lumber framing covered by sheathing material that is attached to the wood framing with nails, staples, or screws. Figure illustrates the components of a wall that is sheathed with wood structural panels (OSB or .
Light-frame wood construction is a cost-effective option for commercial low-rise buildings and offers valuable time savings for developers. Solid sawn wall systems are viable up to 25 feet, while engineered wood wall systems can be up to 40 feet. OSB structural panels are rapidly displacing plywood as a favored product for wall, floor and roof sheathing. Wood I-joists and wood trusses are now used in most new homes. (typically used in the design of light-frame structures) had no apparent correlation with the amount of damage observed in the sampled homes, although a slight trend.

Acterize analytically how light-frame structures perform. Part I of the in-grade program consisted of tests of 2 by 4 Stud grade and 2 by 8 No. 2 Douglas Fir and Southern Pine, and was limited to flexural properties. Results of the tests have been used to predict the.
The Wood Frame Construction Manual (WFCM) for One- and Two-Family Dwellings includes tabulated engineered and prescriptive design and construction provisions for connections, wall systems, floor systems and roof systems based on the specific loads from ASCE Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures.
Get this from a library. Light-frame wall and floor systems: analysis and performance. [Gerald E Sherwood; R C Moody]. The main difference between platform and balloon framing is at the floor lines.
The balloon wall studs extend from the sill of the first story all the way to the top plate or end rafter of the second story. The platform-framed wall, on the other hand, is independent for each floor.

foundation walls through connection of floor systems to foundations. Therefore, the issue of system performance is most pronounced in the above-grade assemblies of light-frame homes. Within the context of simple engineering approaches that are familiar to designers, system-based design principles are addressed in this Chapter.

In wood and light-gauge steel-framed construction, the diaphragms and shear walls (called “braced wall lines” or “braced wall panels” in many codes and standards) are constructed similarly.
However, designing wall partitions, ceiling systems and floor/ceiling assemblies for the distinct qualities of a space will achieve the most effective sound control. Sound is defined as a vibration in an elastic medium, that is, any material (air, water, physical object) that returns.Chapter 9 STRUCTURAL CONCEPT FOR LIGHT GAUGE STEEL FRAME SYSTEM BACKGROUND Over the years, various improved systems have been developed for use in landed properties.
An economical light gauge steel frame system is increasingly being used in wall loads and floor loads will be transferred all the way down to the ground floor.Sep 09, · After validating the model using experimental test data from other studies, it was incorporated into a Monte Carlo simulation to evaluate the strength and reliability of light-frame wall systems subject to combined axial and transverse loads.
