Presents the latest AISI North American specifications for cold-formed steel design

Hailed by professionals around the globe as the definitive text on the design of cold-formed steel, this ebook provides descriptions of the structural and construction behavior of cold-formed steel members and connections from both experimental and theoretical points of view. Updated to show the 2016 AISI North American specification and 2015 North American framing standards, this all-new 5th edition provides readers a better understanding of the analysis and design of the thin-walled, cold-formed steel structures that have been generally used in building construction and other areas in recent years.

Cold-Formed Steel Design, 5th Edition, (PDF) has been revised and reorganized to include the Direct Strength Method. It discusses the details and justification for the numerous design provisions of the North American specification and framing design standards. It offers chapter coverage of: the types of steels and their most vital mechanical properties; the basics of buckling modes; commonly used terms; the design of flexural members, compression members and closed cylindrical tubes, and of beam-columns using LRFD, ASD, and LSD methods; shear diaphragms and shell roof structures; standard corrugated sheets; and more.

  • Incorporates DSM in the main body of design provisions
  • Offers new examples and explanations of design provisions
  • Includes a new section on Power-Actuated Fastener (PAF) Connections
  • Provides thorough coverage of ASD, LSD, LRFD, and DSM design methods
  • Updated to the 2016 North American (AISI S100) design specification and 2015 North American (AISI S240) design standard

Cold-Formed Steel Design Fifth Edition is not only instructive for engineering students, but can serve as a key source of reference for structural engineers, architects, researchers, and construction managers.
