Fwd: Re: cold formed steel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
     For those of you interested in the use of cold-formed steel 
     AISI publishes a residential construction manual for the use of 
     cold-formed steel.  The only part I've seen is their Shear Wall Design 
     Guide, which is really a collection of test data.  The title of other 
     parts of the guide include Fire Resistance, Fasteners, Details, Truss 
     Design, Thermal Resistance, and Durability.  The entire guide sells 
     for about $60.  You can find all the purchase information from the 
     AISI home page,  There might also be some other 
     information of interest accessible from their home page.
     There is also something called the Light Gage Steel Engineers 
     Association based in Nashville.  Despite the name Engineer in their 
     title, they appear to be an organization whose membership consists of 
     the producers and suppliers of light gage framing.  They put out a 
     periodic newsletter that I somehow got a copy of.  Their phone number 
     is 510-439-6645.
