Massive thanks to all the individuals who accompanied me in the journey of study and
research in the University of North Texas (UNT), the journey could not be completed without their
help, advice, counsel and dedication.
First and foremost, so much thank you Dr. Cheng Yu for giving me the opportunity to join
the research group and participating in the exciting innovative shear wall project. I am so grateful
for your academic and financial support throughout the years. Your guidance, working attitude,
and creative thinking influenced me a lot and I firmly believe they will benefit me in the future.
Second, thank you to my professors Dr. Michael Shenoda, Dr. Haifeng Zhang, Dr.
Seifollah Nasrazadani and all other faculty and staff in UNT who provided assistance in my study
and research. I would also especially say thanks to ETEC Lab Manager Bobby Grime who
provided precious technical suggestions to the lab work.
Thanks to the hard work and dedication of all my friends who helped me perform the wall
tests. We developed incredible friendship during the work. These friends are Mahsa Mahdavian,
Nathan Derrick, Nick O'Connor, Zhishan Yan, Jeremy Artman, Adam Johnson and Dawson
Guerrettaz. Special credit to Ph.D student Wenying Zhang, who assisted me tremendously in the
aspects of test and numerical analysis.
I would also like to thank our donors, Steel Stud manufacturers Association, Nucor
Vulcraft and Simpson Strong-Tie.
Finally, tremendously thanks to my parents and brother who always support me and help
me go through all the difficulties in this journey.
Here’s what’s next.
