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 ...
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 ...
Fastener Spacing Study of Cold-Formed Steel Wall Studs Using Finite Strip and Finite Element Methods
This study aims to compare the finite element and finite strip methods as they are used to perform buckling analyses of cold-formed steel wall studs. Load-bearing cold-formed steel studs are becoming more common as a ...
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 ...
