Serviceability issues pertaining to load bearing and non-load bearing steel framed walls
"An experimental investigation was conducted at the University of Missouri-Rolla to study the impacts of the gap between the stud and track of a load bearing steel stud wall considering both strength and serviceability. A testing program was developed to study the implications of the gap distance and five variables were explored...As a result of the investigation a design recommendation was proposed and is being considered for adoption by the American Iron and Steel Institute"--Abstract, leaf iii.
