"Cold formed steel" sounds more manly than "light gage"?

What do you need to know all that for? I have done a lot of light gage design, what am I missing?


CFSEI should have the answers to your light gage, I mean, cold formed steel questions....


On that note, why must "they" keep changing the names of perfectly good terms? What changed?


Light Gage >> Cold formed

Slab on grade >> slab on ground (which sounds less technical)

pour concrete >> place/pump concrete

is it wood, is it timber?

wood sheathing can be plywood or OSB....


Sorry about the tangent.
