Re: Cold Formed Sections

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you can get a hold of the AISI cold formed steel design manual, it will list the standard designations for most manufacturers as well as the SSMA designations.

For the sections you've noted, the first nomenclature would be something like...
12      CS        3.75        x     060
depth  profile    flange width   thickness (mils)

Good luck.

I am trying to make a design using STAAD with Steel Cold Formed Sections. But the Properties Tables show sections like:



In the Steel Stud Manufacturers Association page (SSMA) y found the nomenclature for sections like 600S162-54 and explanation for section properties that STAAD doesn't have. How I can correlate STAAD with SSMA sections?
