TITLE: Partnership for Advancing Technologies in Housing: Advanced Replacements for Mechanical Fasteners in Housing Construction for High Wind Zones

SHORT DESCR: PARTNERSHIP FOR ADVANCING TECHNOLOGIES IN HOUSING: ADVANCED REPLACEMENTS FOR MECHANICAL FASTENERS IN HOUSING CONSTRUCTION FOR HIGH WIND ZONES

LONG DESCR: NSF PROPOSAL # 0122124, ADVANCED REPLACEMENTS FOR MECHANICAL FASTENERS IN HOUSING CONSTRUCTION FOR HIGH WIND ZONES

ABSTRACT: Adhesives offer several design benefits over conventional mechanical fasteners, including nails and rivets. The acrylic foam tape is a unique adhesive product that requires no curing and yet offers substantial property advantages for certain semistructural applications. Virginia Tech proposes to implement an innovative assembly process in the construction industry through the development of materials, design, and application databases. The assembly process will be based on generic acrylic foam tapes, and the test bed will be shear walls and diaphragms in light-frame construction for wind-critical areas, a very large market segment. The assembly process meets PATH (Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing) goals of promoting housing affordability, durability, and wind-damage resistance. PATH's technical areas addressed are “advanced panel systems” and “whole-house and building process redesign.” The fundamental research component of the project will generate material data, with emphasis on tape durability. Numerical structural modeling and cyclic tests of the assemblies will provide a basis for showing the adequacy of the tape to resist the dynamic loads associated with high wind events. A
