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 ...
CFS-NEES Building Structural Design Narrative
The NSF sponsored CFS-NEES1 project R-CR: Enabling Performance-Based Seismic Design of Multi-Story Cold-Formed Steel Structures project was undertaken to study the behavior, particularly seismic behavior, of light-framed ...
Simulation of cold-formed steel structures
Buildings framed from cold-formed steel members are becoming increasingly common. Simulation of cold-formed steel (CFS) structures in this dissertation includes seismic modeling and analysis of a two-story CFS-framed ...
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 ...
