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 ...
Impact of Fastener Spacing on the Behavior of Cold-Formed Steel Shear Walls Sheathed with Fiber Cement Board
As cold-formed steel (CFS) is progressively used in high seismic regions as part of the designated lateral force resisting system, it is necessary to explore higher capacity systems. Furthermore, these systems must be fully ...
Numerical investigation of the impact of bearing condition on the axial behavior of variable-height cold-formed steel stud wall assemblies
This paper is devoted to identifying and numerically characterizing the strength of cold-formed steel (CFS) wall assemblies of various height with non-uniform bearing conditions. The results are for a means of evaluating ...
Characterizing Wall-to-Diaphragm Moment-Rotation Response in Cold-Formed Steel Systems via Fastener Limit States
Ledger framing is currently the dominant framing system in cold-formed steel buildings and is a popular choice for its flexibility in floor joist spacing with respect to wall stud spacing. In ledger framing, the floor, ...
Incorporating cold-formed steel member and system design into the undergraduate curriculum
Cold-formed steel design, in an ideal scenario, deserves an entire advanced undergraduate or graduate level course. However, this is not practical in many institutions, where a program of study can only include a few courses ...
