Civil Engineering Study 88-1
INTRODUCTION This progress report on the design of cold-formed stainless steel structural members contains the following two parts: Part I: Proposed Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Stainless Steel Structural Members (Third Draft). Part II: Commentary on the Proposed Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Stainless Steel Structural Members (Second Draft). This project was sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The financial assistance provided by the Chromium Center, the Nickel Development Institute, and the Specialty Steel Industry of the United States is gratefully acknowledged. Special thanks are extended to members of the ASCE Steering Committee (Dr. Ivan M. Viest, Mr. Don S. Wolford, and Mr. John P. Ziemianski), Mr. Edwin Jones of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Dr. W. K. Armitage of the Chromium Center, and Mr. Johannes P. Schade of the Nickel Development Institute for their technical guidance. Appreciation is also expressed to Mr. Ziemianski and Professor van der Merwe for providing the technical information on Types 409, 430, and 439.
