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

Alternative Title

Research Report RP08-1

Abstract

The North American Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Framing - Wall Stud Design, AISI S211-07, provides a design expression for web crippling at the end reaction of the single stud-to-track connection. The subject of this report is an experimental investigation that was carried out at the University of Waterloo to establish a similar design expression for multiple jamb stud members. It is anticipated that the AISI Committee on Framing Standards will consider the results of this study in the development of future standards and the Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute in the development of design aids. The American Iron and Steel Institute and Steel Framing Alliance wish to express their appreciation to the researchers and project sponsors for this report.
