AISI-Specifications for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members

Alternative Title

Research Report RP04-4

Abstract

The primary objective of this project was to study the effect of corrosion on the structural integrity of galvanized fasteners used in cold-formed steel-framed construction. A number of specific tasks were developed to meet this objective, including a literature search, design and construction of field enclosures, determination of test sites and installation of field enclosures, test specimen design and fabrication, accelerated corrosion testing, structural tensile testing, data analysis and technology transfer.
