WEBINAR OUTLINE

This webinar will review the fundamentals of cold-formed steel connection behavior and design. The primary focus will be on screw and weld connections; however, a limited discussion of bolt and power-actuated fastener (PAF) connections will also be provided. An overview of the design provisions in AISI S100, North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members will be included. In addition, design issues for typical cold-formed steel framing connections will be explored, including deflection track, stud-to-track, stud splice and cantilever knee wall connections.
