Check out, :"Cold Formed Steel Design" by Wei-Wen Yu. It is the third edition published in 2000. I don't think there is a newer edition yet. It will answer most of your questions. For details go to They also have DXF files for download.

I am looking for some guidance on metal stud design.  I am also looking for some typical details – reference to manufacturer’s web site that contain some typical detail would be appreciated.   Your input would be greatly appreciated.
