The objective of this paper is to detail recent cyclic testing on Oriented Strand Board (OSB) sheathed cold-formed steel (CFS) shear walls. The shear walls are designed for a two-story ledger-framed building that will undergo full-scale shake table testing as part of the National Science Foundation funded Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES)(More)
The objective of this paper is to provide a full hysteretic characterization of OSB sheathed cold-formed steel (CFS) shear walls designed for use in the National Science Foundation funded Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) project: CFS-NEES (www.ce.jhu.edu/cfsnees). The shear walls were designed for a two-story ledger-framed building(More)
Strain engineered graphene has been predicted to show many interesting physics and device applications. Here we study biaxial compressive strain in graphene/hexagonal boron nitride heterostructures after thermal cycling to high temperatures likely due to their thermal expansion coefficient mismatch. The appearance of sub-micron self-supporting bubbles(More)
natural increase (births‐deaths). However, Illinois lost 784,988 residents due to net out migration (residents moving out exceeded those moving in). Therefore, the net increase of Illinois residents was 865,940 in the 15‐year time period. • On average, 181,253 people moved into Illinois each year, while 233,583 people moved out of Illinois. As a result,(More)
The objective of this paper is to summarize a multi-year effort to advance our understanding in the seismic behavior of, and improve the design of, buildings framed from cold-formed steel (CFS). The effort includes a U.S. National Science Foundation funded project and companion industry-funded projects taken together under the abbreviated name: CFS-NEES.(More)
