Structural Expression in Wind Sensitive Structures
Architectural details can impact both the local cladding pressures on a structure as well as the overall structural response. Figure 1 shows a pair of roof corner vortices on the upper...

Securing the Stone
To prevent spalling at edges on thin stone veneer, engineers who design stone cladding pay special attention to the connection details. Kerf clips, 100-150 mm long, that distribute load...

Saving Face
Inspections revealed that the glass-fiber-reinforced concrete (GFRC) and ceramic tile cladding on a wing of the University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle, failed and needed to be...

Diaphragm Action of Cladding in Low-Rise Metal Buildings
An investigation of the contribution of cladding to the lateral stiffness of a metal building is presented in this paper. The diaphragm action of the cladding tends to redistribute the...
