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 ...
Cyclic Performance of Steel Sheet Connections for CFS framed Steel Sheet Sheathed Shear Walls
The main objective of this research is to study fastener-level force-deformation response appropriate for standard cold-formed steel (CFS) framed steel sheet sheathed shear walls under cyclic loads. Recently completed ...
Proceedings and Summary of the 2020 CFSRC Colloquium
With 110 concurrent attendees from 15 time zones and 51 papers and talks the global online Colloquium held from 20-21 October 2020 provided a unique forum for sharing and learning about the latest research and innovations ...
Lateral Response of Cold-Formed Steel Framed Steel Sheathed In-line Wall Systems Detailed for Mid-Rise Build
Buildings constructed with cold formed steel (CFS) framing have shown great potential as a modern efficient building system. However, full understanding of their lateral structural behavior, particularly the contribution ...
