S211Presentation Outline:  Curtain walls with various types of cladding are commonly used for many modern structures and areoften framed with cold-formed steel.  Curtain walls are typically attached to the main building frame and therefore must be designed to accommodate deflections of the structural frame and also designed to transfer wind and seismic forces to the structure.  This webinar will cover many of the topics a designer will need for a complete cold-formed steel curtain wall design.  The information presented will be based upon AISI S100, North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members, AISI S211, North American Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Framing - Wall Stud Design and various CFSEI Technical Notes.  Some specific topics covered will include stud design, top track design, design of openings, bridging and various additional miscellaneous topics.  Example calculations will also be provided covering studs, top track, connections and openings.

Who Should Attend?

This webinar is for architects, engineers, building officials and contractors.
