Summary Concerning the specialty of the testing of stressed skin diaphragm assembly, the current loading method of cantilever beam test is improved by the diagonally loading method. In order to investigate the differences of the shear behavior between the stressed skins spanning several purlins and few purlins , which have the same forms and spaces of the connections and purlins, comparing experiments are carried out. Using the curve fitting method, the test results are quantified. The shear rigidity of two specimens is gained. It shows that the shear rigidity of the diaphragm spanning several purlins is quite higher than that spanning few purlins, but the carrying capacity of the former is a little lower than that of the latter.
