GENERAL NOTES: The following notes apply to all of the tables in this report unless otherwise noted.
1. The allowable diaphragm shear values listed in the tables are in pounds per linear foot (N/m).
2. Allowable superimposed loads listed in the tables are in pounds per square foot (Pa).
3. The uncoated base-metal thickness for all decks is indicated in Tables 1A and 1B. The thickness delivered to the jobsite
must be 95 percent of the thickness noted in the tables.
4. Deck panel seams must be fastened by welds, button punches or DeltaGrip™ seam attachment, as indicated in the
1
report. The length of seam welds must be a minimum of 1 /2 inches (38 mm). The DeltaGrip connection is three inverted
V-shaped, sheared embossments, engaging all three sheet steel layers of the hem as shown in Figure 6, with the
minimum offset as shown in figure 6. The seam attachment, where required, must be in accordance with the appropriate
table, not to exceed 3 feet (914 mm) on center unless noted otherwise.
3
5. Arc seam or spot (puddle) welds must have an effective fusion area to supporting members at least equivalent to /8 inch
1
(10 mm) wide by 1 inch (25 mm) long or /2 inch (13 mm) in diameter.
6. Puddle weld patterns are shown in Figure 3 for Types ASC2, ASC3, B, BR, BF, N, NR, NF, 2W, 2WF, 3W and
3WF decks.
7. Spacing of marginal welds to members parallel to flutes must comply with the following, unless otherwise noted:
a. Arc seam or spot (puddle) welds to members such as chords and to collector elements such as struts or ties must
have a spacing in feet (mm) equal to 35,000(t)/v (For SI: 6,130(t)/v), where:
t = Uncoated base-metal thickness of fluted steel deck, in inches (mm).
v = Actual diaphragm shear at marginal supports or actual shear transferred to collector, in pounds per foot (N/m).
b. Fillet welds to members such as diaphragm chords must have a spacing in feet (mm) equal to 480 (lw)/v (For SI:
84 (lw)/v),
where:
1
lw = Length of weld, in inches (mm) [not less than 1 /2 inches (38 mm)].
v = Actual diaphragm shear to be transferred to chords, in pounds per foot (N/m).
c. Fillet welds attaching the diaphragms to struts, ties or other collector elements must have a spacing in feet (mm)
equal to 300 (lw)/v (For SI: 52.5 lw/v), where v is the actual shear to be transferred to the collector element, in pounds
per foot (N/m).
d. Weld spacing is limited to 3 feet (914 mm), maximum.
8. Regarding attachments at interior lines of shear transfer perpendicular to deck corrugations: The shear transfer from a
diaphragm to interior tie or strut lines perpendicular to deck corrugations must not exceed the shear values indicated in
the tables. Two lines of puddle welds may be used to develop the actual shear transfer to these collector elements.
9. Where individual panels are cut, the partial panel must be fastened in a manner to fully transfer the shears at the point of
the diaphragm to the adjacent full panels for the values specified in the tables.
10. The minimum 28-day compressive strength for structural concrete must be 3,000 psi (20.68 MPa). The appropriate
concrete density (normal weight or structural lightweight) is indicated in the tables. The minimum concrete depth must be
2 inches (51 mm) over the top flange, and the concrete must be reinforced with a minimum 6 × 6 W1.4 × W1.4 welded-
1
wire fabric. The reinforcement must be placed near the center of the fill over the top flange. If the fill exceeds a 3 /4-inch
(83 mm) thickness over the top flange, reinforcement is required in each direction equal to 0.00075 times the area of
concrete fill over the metal deck.
11. All decks with structural concrete fill may be considered to have F < 1.
12. For decks with concrete fill, the diaphragm shear values and flexibility factors apply to deck sections with or without
embossments.
13. Composite deck panel seams must be fastened at 36 inches (914 mm) on center, maximum, to reduce differential
deflection during concrete placement with button punches or screws. DeltaGrip™ seam attachments or welds may be
used to reduce differential deflection with the seam attachments when spaced at a maximum of 60 inches (1524 mm)
on center.
14. For decks with structural concrete fill, the diaphragm shear values and flexibility factors apply whether or not the sidelaps
are attached.
15. For decks with structural concrete fill, the allowable diaphragm shear and flexibility factors apply to galvanized, painted, or
bare steel deck top side with a prime painted underside, commonly referred to as phosphatized/painted steel deck.

Values must not exceed 1990 plf for 21/2 inch normal-weight concrete slabs, 1,900 plf for 21/2 inch structural lightweight concrete
slabs, and 2,200 plf for 31/4 inch structural lightweight concrete slabs, unless mesh having an area of 0.0025 times the gross area of
concrete is used. Six by six – W4 x W4 meets this requirement for 21/2 inch slabs and 4 x 4 – W4 x W4 qualifies for 31/4 inch slabs.
2
Stud diameter must not exceed 2.5 times the thickness of the steel support, unless stud is located directly over support web.
3
See Figures 1 and 7 for qualifying deck types and weld patterns.
4
For local shear transfer within the field of the diaphragm, 1/2 inch-diameter studs having shear values of 6.8 kips per stud for
normal-weight concrete fills and 5.8 kips per stud for lightweight concrete, except as noted hereafter, shall be used. For Deck Types
B-36 and BF-36, where the width of concrete at the stud is less than 2.25 inches, values of 5.7 kips and 4.9 kips, respectively, must
be used. For Deck Types N-24 and NF-24, where the width of concrete at the stud is less than 4.5 inches, 3/4 inch –diameter studs
with values of 3.5 kips and 3.0 kips, respectively, must be used.
5
See Table 19 for Diaphragm Flexibility Limitations.
6
Standing seam sidelaps of decks must be fastened by button punches at 36 inches on center. Nestable seams must be fastened
using either No. 12 self-tapping screws or 11/2 inch–long fillet welds at 36 inches on center.

NW = Normal weight (145 pcf). LW = structural lightweight (110 pcf).
8
Concrete thickness, tf, is measured from top flute of metal deck.
9
Deck Types B-36, BF-36, BR-35, 2W36 and 2WF36, identified in Figure 1, require 1/2 inch –diameter studs minimum. Five-eighths-
inch-diameter studs minimum are required for Deck Types NR-24, 3W36 and 3WF36. For Deck Type N-24 and NF-24, 3/8-inch-
diameter studs minimum are required and the tabulated shears must be reduced by a factor of 0.74.

1
Diaphragms shall be investigated regarding their flexibility and recommended span-depth limitations. Refer to above table for
determination of value of F.
2
Diaphragms supporting masonry or concrete walls shall have their deflections limited to the following amount:

H2 fc
∆wall =
0.01Et

where:

H = Unsupported height of wall in feet.


t = Thickness of wall in inches.
E = Modulus of elasticity of wall material for deflection determination in pounds per square inch.
fc = Allowable compressive strength of wall material in flexure in pounds per square inch.
For concrete, fc = 0.45f’c. For masonry, fc = Fb = 0.33f’m.
3
The total deflection ∆ of the diaphragm may be computed from the equation: ∆ = ∆f + ∆w
where:

∆f = Flexural deflection of the diaphragm determined in the same manner as the deflection of beams.
∆w = The web deflection may be determined by the equation:

q ave LF
∆w =
10 6
where:

L = Distance in feet between vertical resisting element (such as shear wall) and the point to which the deflection is to be
determined.
qave = Average shear in diaphragm in pounds per foot over length L.
F = Flexibility factor: The average microinches a diaphragm web will deflect in a span of 1 foot under a shear of 1 pound per
foot.
4
When applying these limitations to cantilevered diaphragms, the allowable span-depth ratio will be half that shown.
5
Diaphragm classification (flexible or rigid) and deflection limits shall comply with Section 4.4.
