Behavior of Full-Scale Cold-Formed Steel Buildings under Seismic Excitations
The experimental behavior of cold-formed steel (CFS) structures under seismic loads remains relatively unexplored. Modern design codes are based on member and sub- system level testing and have not been validated at the ...
Test Report on Cold-Formed Steel Shear Walls
The objective of report is to detail recent cyclic tests on cold-formed steel (CFS) framed shear walls sheathed with Oriented Strand Board (OSB). The tests details are motivated from shear walls designed for a two-story ...
Hysteretic shear response of fasteners connecting sheathing to cold-formed steel studs
The series of experiments reported here aims to characterize the hysteretic behavior of the connection between cold-formed steel (CFS) studs and sheathing when subject to in- plane lateral demands. This connection provides ...
Experiments on the Stability of Sheathed Cold-Formed Steel Studs Under Axial Load and Bending
This report provides test and analysis results for a typical cold-formed steel (CFS) stud as employed in light steel framing for a building. Specifically, tests are conducted on a 362S162-68 (50 ksi) stud connected to ...
