Test date: Aug. 23, 2016
Wall dimensions: 8 ft. x 4 ft. Studs: 350 T 125 - 68, 50 ksi Tracks: 350 T 150- 68, 50 ksi
Steel sheathing: Verco Decking, SV36, 22 ga, 80 ksi
Fastener: # 12 x 1 - 1/4" hex head washer self-drilling screws, 3/6 in. spacing
Gravity loads: 5384 lbs
Test protocol: Cyclic test
Average Peak load: 5520.70 lbs
Average Lateral displacement of wall @ peak load: 3.02 in.
Peak Load Cycle: 38
Observed Failure Mode: vertical chord tracks and middle buckle, screw pull out in the bottom track
Screw Pull Out: Yes
Sheathing Tear: No
Note: Negative peak load was not a valid data, the T-bar hit the testing frame.
