Presentation Outline

To provide state-of-the art knowledge regarding the behavior and design of cold-formed steel members and connection CFSEI has updated 32 Tech Notes. These updates reflected both editorial corrections and changes in the design standards, AISI S100, North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members and AISI S240, North American Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Structural Framing. Typical design standards changes recognized an increased understanding of the technical nature of the behavior of cold-formed steel members and connections.

This webinar will cover overview of changes on the updated tech notes including:

  • General review of Tech Note L101-23, Design of Cold-Formed Steel Sheet and Wood Structural Panel Sheathed Shear Walls for Wind and Seismic Forces. This tech note provides an overview of low seismic and wind-controlled steel sheet and wood structural panel sheathed cold-formed steel framed shear wall designs
  • Detailed review of Tech Note F104-24, Design of Cold-Formed Steel Bearing Stiffeners. This review will discuss the design provisions for bearing stiffeners in AISI S100 and common methods for using bearings stiffeners in construction.

  • The new Tech Note W601, Design Methodology for Hole Reinforcement of Cold-Formed Steel Compression Members, presents thoughts regarding the reinforcing of either flange or web holes in cold-formed steel compression members. This webinar will provide an overview of this new Tech Note.
