Abstract

This progress report contains the following two parts: Part I: Tentative Recommendations - Load and Resistance Factor Design Criteria for Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members (pp. i-47). Part II: Commentary on Tentative Recommendations - Load and Resistance Factor Design Criteria for Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members (pp. 48-86). The tentative design recommendations are based on the statistical data presented in previous progress reports and the newly revised load factors used in Section 8.3.4 of the design criteria. The selections of ¢ factors are discussed in the Commentary for various types of structural members and connections. This investigation was sponsored by American Iron and Steel Institute. The technical guidance provided by the AISI Task Group on Load and Resistance Factor Design (K.H. Klippstein, Chairman, D. H. Hall and R. L. Cary, members), the advisors for the AISI Task Group (R. Bjorhovde, C.W. Pinkham, R.M. Schuster, and G. Winter), former members of the AISI Task Group (N.C. Lind, R.B. Matlock, W. Mueller, F.J. Phillips, and D.S. Wolford), the AISI Staff (A.L. Johnson and D.P. Cassidy) and our consultant, M.K. Ravindra, is gratefully acknowledged. Special thanks are extended to T.N. Rang and B. Supornsilaphachai for conducting this project and to Mrs. Catherine McLaughlin for typing this report.
