The Center for
Cold-Formed Steel Structures (CCFSS) was established at the University of Missouri-Rolla (now Missouri University of Science and Technology) in May 1990 under
an initial grant received from the American
Iron and Steel Institute
. The Center's sponsors now also include: Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute, Metal Building Manufacturers Association
, Metal Construction Assocation
, Rack Manufacturers Institute
, Simpson Strong-Tie
, Steel Deck Institute
, and Steel Framing Industry Association
. In 2000, the Center was renamed for its Founding Director, Dr. Wei-Wen Yu.
The mission of the Center is to provide an integrated approach for handling research, teaching, engineering education, technical services, and professional activity. The Center brings together the technical resources of interested parties, i.e., university researchers, steel producers, product manufacturers, consultants, building officials, government agencies, and others with a common goal of continued improvement of cold-formed steel design and construction.
