VERIFICATION OF THE RIGID VINYL MODELING TECHNIQUE: THE SL-7 STRUCTURE (SL-7-6)

The direct comparisons of a rigid vinyl structural model with its steel counterpart under equivalent load conditions has been a prerequisite to the final verification of the rigid vinyl modeling technique. Such a program was completed and the resulting correlation described herein indicates that the structural response of a rigid vinyl model can be used to predict prototype characteristics effectively.
