Civil Engineering Study 88-3
FOREWORD This progress report contains the following two parts: Part I: Load and Resistance Factor Design Specification for Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members (pp. i-101). Part II: Commentary on the Load and Resistance Factor Design Specification for Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members (pp. 103-148). The load and resistance factor design specification proposed herein is the revised version of the design recommendations prepared in September 1985 and submitted to American Iron and Steel Institute as Seventh Progress Report. This document was prepared according to the 1986 edition of the AISI Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members. The selections of ϕ 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 Subcommittee on Load and Resistance Factor Design and the AISI Staff is gratefully acknowledged. Members of the AISI Subcommittee are: K. H. Klippstein (Chairman), R. Bjorhovde, D. S. Ellifritt, S. J. Errera, T. V. Galambos, B. Hall, D. H. Hall, R. B. Heagler, N. Iwankiw, A. L. Johnson, D. L. Johnson, A. C. Kuentz, A. S. Nowak, T. B. Pekoz, C. W. Pinkham, R. M. Schuster, and W. W. Yu. Former members of the AISI Task Group on LRFD included R. L. Cary, N. C. Lind, R. B. Matlock, W. Mueller, F. J. Phillips, D. S. Wolford and Late Professor G. Winter. Special thanks are extended to T. V. Galambos, Consultant of the project, T. N. Rang, B. Supornsilaphachai, B. K. Snyder, L. C. Pan, and M. K. Rarindra for their contributions to the project.
