See 1994 UBC Chapter 22, Divisions V and X for LFRD and ASD design of light
gage steel.  Also see the American Iron and Steel Institute specifications for
the design of these products.

Keep in mind that these are not compact sections and that (in some cases)
considerable reductions in allowable stresses must be taken, especially for
members or elements of members which experience compressive stresses.
