presentation describes the seismic design of concrete-filled steel deck
diaphragms based on the latest research. Design equations in the latest
(and in some cases upcoming) code editions along with supporting research will
be presented for the two basic limit states of diagonal tension cracking and
shear transfer failure. An example will be provided to demonstrate the
design of a concrete-filled steel deck diaphragm for these limit states using
demands calculated with the alternative diaphragm design provisions in ASCE
7. Calculation of diaphragm deflections and design of shear transfer
along collectors will also be discussed. The presentation will conclude with a
description of how buildings will perform during earthquakes if designed using
