Abstract

This paper presents an experimental investigation of the behavior of cold-formed steel (CFS) framed walls sheathed by steel sheets subjected to both lateral and gravity loads. The research focuses were on the collapse limit of the CFS shear wall using steel sheet sheathing and the shear resistance of CFS bearing walls. The test results showed that the gravity load has limited impact to the CFS shear wall’s behavior and performance. The CFS bearing wall could provide considerable shear resistance and it shall be considered in numerical modeling CFS buildings.

Behavior of Steel Sheet Sheathed Cold-Formed Steel Walls Subjected to Combined Lateral and Vertical Loads

This paper presents an experimental investigation of the behavior of cold-formed steel (CFS) framed walls sheathed by steel sheets subjected to both lateral and gravity loads. The research focuses were on the collapse limit of the CFS shear wall using steel sheet sheathing and the shear resistance of CFS bearing walls. The test results showed that the gravity load has limited impact to the CFS shear wall’s behavior and performance. The CFS bearing wall could provide considerable shear resistance and it shall be considered in numerical modeling CFS buildings.
