Abstract

Seismic collectors are elements that bring inertial forces to the Seismic Force Resisting System elements. In steel composite structures, collectors are typically part of the underlying frame, modified to carry collector forces as needed. Due to the reversing nature of earthquake loads, collectors are designed both for tension (with a focus on connections) and compression (beamcolumns). The actual seismic demands on the collector elements are poorly defined. The steel composite deck floor system is a complicated indeterminate assemblage that must maintain gravity load resistance while transferring the collector forces. An analytical research program is presented to study of the seismic performance of collectors in composite steel deck diaphragms, including load paths, characteristics under compression and tension, and the impact of the composite slab in load participation and bracing. Design recommendations are sought for appropriate strength and details of steel composite collectors.
