Abstract

This paper presents excerpts from the latest edition of the Canadian Standard for the design of cold formed steel structural members (CAN/CSA-SI36-M89). Considerable technical changes, reflecting the latest research developments, have been incorporated into this edition of the Standard. These changes are based on an increased understanding of the behaviour of cold formed steel structures, members, and elements and of cold formed steel as a structural material. Some of the more significant technical changes of the Standard are discussed in greater detail. Comparisons with the Standard's predecessor (CAN3-S136-M84), and whenever appropriate, with the 1986 AISI Specifications are also made.

The 1989 Edition of the Canadian Cold Formed Steel Design Standard

Saint Louis, Missouri

This paper presents excerpts from the latest edition of the Canadian Standard for the design of cold formed steel structural members (CAN/CSA-SI36-M89). Considerable technical changes, reflecting the latest research developments, have been incorporated into this edition of the Standard. These changes are based on an increased understanding of the behaviour of cold formed steel structures, members, and elements and of cold formed steel as a structural material. Some of the more significant technical changes of the Standard are discussed in greater detail. Comparisons with the Standard's predecessor (CAN3-S136-M84), and whenever appropriate, with the 1986 AISI Specifications are also made.
