Tech NotePresentation Outline:  Cold-formed steel framing members are typically connected using metal connectors and small fasteners.  These connections whether they use angles, blocks of stud, or proprietary clips require proper design to produce a strong and easy to install connection.  In this webinar, common construction problems will be reviewed such as insufficient tool access, drill capacity, and adjustability. The presenter will use recently published analysis techniques to show the designer how to determine connection capacity under eccentric loading, buckling, prying and other commonly overlooked failure modes.

PDHsYou should attend this webinar to learn important considerations for cold-formed steel connection design and characteristics of common fasteners. The presenter will also explain the techniques of connection design with special emphasis on clip angles designed for compression, tension and shear. 

Who Should Attend?

This webinar is for architects, engineers, building officials and anyone who designs or evaluates cold-formed steel connections.
