Behavior and Design of Sheathed Cold-Formed Steel Stud Walls under Compression
MetadataShow full item record
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 also serves to brace the cold- formed steel studs under load. This thesis is dedicated to the study of sheathed cold- formed steel walls under axial loads.
