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 ...
Direct Strength Design of Cold-Formed Steel Members with Perforations
Cold-formed steel (CFS) structural members are commonly manufactured with holes to accommodate plumbing, electrical, and heating conduits in the walls and ceilings of buildings. Current design methods available to engineers ...
Behavior and Design of Sheathed Cold-Formed Steel Stud Walls under Compression
Cold-formed steel may be used to frame the walls, floors, and roofs of modern buildings. The individual cold-formed steel members (studs) have sheathing attached to provide appropriate architectural enclosures. This sheathing ...
Direct Strength Prediction of Cold-Formed Steel Beam-Columns
The Direct Strength Method (DSM) of cold-formed steel member design employs local, distortional, and global cross-section elastic buckling analysis with empirically derived “direct” expressions to predict member strength. ...
Sheathing Braced Design of Wall Studs
This report provides a summary document and final report for the multi-year project on Sheathing Braced Design of Wall Studs conducted at Johns Hopkins University. This project examined the axial behavior and axial + bending ...
