RE: Good Reference for Light Gage Metal Framing?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A good source of cfs practical examples is the AISI Cold-Formed Steel Framing Design Guide CF02-1 (first printing January 2002). 
Check out the Steel Framing Alliance ( ) and the Cold Formed Steel Engineers Institue ( ) for design guides and technical notes.

Subject: Good Reference for Light Gage Metal Framing?

What is the best resource for learning more about light gage metal framing? The AISI standards look good, but I wonder if they have any practical examples. Are the AISI standards enough or would I need a textbook to understand how to use the standards? If so, what is a good reference to have?
