Re: Good Reference for Light Gage Metal Framing?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
AISI publications, such as the specification and commentary, framing standards, 
and design guides, are available at a discount for Cold-Formed Steel Engineers 
Institute (CFSEI) members at their website at .  The CFSEI also 
provides technical notes and design guides that help designers understand the 
AISI specification and standards provisions as well as providing typical 
cold-formed steel AutoCAD details for download.

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?
