The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) provides must-have technical and professional resources for designers of cold-formed steel structures. A valued resource is CFSEI’s Technical Notes series, which includes more than 40 documents and continues to grow to meet the demands of users.

This presentation will provide a summary of CFSEI Technical Notes that have been published or updated this past year or will be published in the coming months. New Technical Notes to be issued include “Thermal Energy Transfer of CFS Framing”, “Cold-Formed Steel Load Bearing Wall Design” and “Coordinating with Metal Buildings”.
