Therefore AISI extended its standards development activity to support the growing needs of the cold-formed steel framing industry. The list of these standards, as well as other excellent design guides, are provided. This chapter contains design provisions for cold-formed steel framing members and assemblies, as previously included in AISI S, S, S, and S First Name Last Name.

However, AISI S now incorporates an exception for a built-up axial load bearing section comprised of two studs oriented back-to-back forming an I-shaped cross-section.

Although the AISI Specification had gained acceptance and was in widespread use, there were a number of aiei issues that were not adequately addressed for this emerging market.

Format defines design considerations. This new exception provides for a more economical built-up member, as is often used as a jamb stud or shear wall boundary member. The ends of a built-up compression member are connected by a weld having a length not less than the maximum width of the member or by connectors spaced longitudinally not more than 4 diameters apart for a distance equal to 1.

The method assumes a sheathing strip carries the lateral load via tension field action.

These cold-formed steel framing standards are available as free downloads at www. Also, for ease of ais, S contains a section reference table between the S provisions and the previous provisions Table 2.

This chapter provides installation requirements previously contained in the various framing standards. However, rather than add to the complexity of the AISI Specification, it was decided that a new family of standards should be developed. It outlines the scope, which is for design and installation of cold-formed steel framing of a floor and roof systems, b structural walls, c shear walls, strap braced walls, and diaphragms to resist in-plane lateral loads, and d trusses for load-carrying purposes in buildings.


This new standard includes design provisions aixi wall systems, floor and roof systems, lateral force-resisting systems, as well as truss and header assemblies. Connection design is limited to primarily a discussion of screw connections. This new chapter lists applicable AISI test standards for cold-formed steel framing members, connections, and systems.

This article focuses on AISI S which applies to cold-formed steel structural members subject to gravity loading, wind loading, and seismic loading, except when specific seismic detailing is required. The previous design standards limited their application to framing members having a maximum base steel thickness to mils 0. These applications include wall, floor and roof framing in a number of building types.

From tothe AISI Committee on Framing Standards developed nine different framing standards to cover specific aspects of cold-formed steel framing.

The chapter also includes:. The scope was selected to provide coverage of the high volume application of cold-formed steel in light-framed construction. Sheathing and discrete bracing. The simple reason aisl, it was easier to develop small single-topic documents versus a more comprehensive multi-topic document. The discrete braces are limited to not greater than 8 feet 2. Six of these standards addressed the design of structural elements, aiis as general provisions, wall studs, floor joists, trusses, headers, and shear walls.

The exception applies where the built-up section is aizi properly in a track, and the top and bottom end bearing detail of the studs consists of a steel or concrete support with adequate strength and stiffness to preclude relative end slip of the two built-up stud sections. Additional explanatory language is also provided.

This document is intended to serve only as an educational tool. But, why would AISI develop six discrete framing standards as opposed to one design manual? Flexural Members Chapter E: Leave a Comment Click here to cancel reply. ASTM C has historically stipulated manufacturing tolerances for cold-formed steel structural framing members.


Section reference table S and previous standard. Permanent link to this article: The truss component structural performance load test and full-scale truss confirmatory test methods, s212-077 included in AISI S, are provided in this appendix. S212-077 chapter contains design, manufacturing quality criteria, and installation requirements ajsi cold-formed steel trusses as previously included in AISI S Effective strip method model for steel-sheet sheathing.

This newly developed chapter provides minimum requirements for quality control and quality assurance for material control and installation for cold-formed steel light-frame construction. The other standards addressed such topics as a code of standard practice, the definition of standard product, and prescriptive design for residential applications.

This limitation has been eliminated from AISI S; however, it should be remembered that mils is still the maximum thickness of standard products in the United States and 97 mils 0.

This method provides an alternative approach to determine the shear wall strength, especially for those that are outside the limitations of the tested systems. This appendix contains requirements for the determination of the rotational stiffness that structural sheathing provides to framing members to facilitate the design for distortional buckling.

The use of ASTM E results in higher nominal shear strength values as compared with the cantilever test method historically used for steel deck diaphragms.

The document addresses the design for a C-shaped cross section as a flexural member and a compression member.

The commentary and explanatory language is identified by a vertical black line along the right margin. Print this Page Design Documents. Inthe manufacturing tolerance values were extended to the flange width and stiffening lip length. Beneficial for the design engineer is a new Effective Strip Method that enables the calculation of the nominal in-plane shear wall strength for Type I shear walls Figure 2.
