Beneficial for the design engineer is a new Aisu Strip Method that enables the calculation of the nominal in-plane shear wall strength for Type I shear walls Figure 2.

Inthe manufacturing tolerance values were extended to the flange width and stiffening lip length. This newly developed chapter provides minimum requirements for quality control and quality assurance for material control and installation for cold-formed steel light-frame construction. This new exception provides for a more economical built-up member, as is often used as a jamb stud or shear wall boundary member.

This appendix contains requirements for the determination of the rotational stiffness that structural sheathing provides to framing members to facilitate the design for distortional buckling.

Also, for ease of use, S contains a section reference table between the S provisions and the previous provisions Table 2. The method assumes a sheathing strip carries the lateral load via tension field action. It outlines the scope, which is for design and installation of cold-formed steel framing of a floor and roof systems, b structural walls, c shear walls, strap braced walls, and diaphragms to resist in-plane lateral loads, and d trusses for load-carrying purposes in buildings. ASTM C has historically stipulated manufacturing tolerances for cold-formed steel structural framing members.


The discrete braces are limited to not greater than 8 feet 2. The previous design standards limited their application to framing members having a maximum base steel thickness to mils 0. The truss component structural performance ajsi test and full-scale truss confirmatory test methods, previously included in AISI S, are provided asii this appendix. For curtain wall systems, the standard now permits the use of the bracing combination of sheathing attached to one side of the wall stud and discrete bracing for the other flange Figure 1.

Six of these standards addressed the design of structural elements, such as general provisions, wall studs, floor joists, trusses, headers, and shear walls.

The effective strip method is permitted to be used within the following range of parameters:. First Name Last Name. The exception applies where the built-up section is seated properly in a track, and the top and bottom end bearing detail of the studs consists s2130-7 a steel or concrete support with adequate strength and stiffness to preclude relative end slip of the two built-up stud sections.

This chapter contains design wisi for cold-formed steel framing members and assemblies, as previously included in AISI S, S, S, and S These cold-formed steel framing standards are available as free downloads at www.

This limitation has been eliminated from AISI S; however, it should be remembered that mils is still the maximum thickness of standard products in the United States and 97 mils 0. Your message Submit Comment.

Section reference table S and previous standard. Leave a Comment S213-077 here to cancel reply. From tothe AISI Committee on Framing Standards developed nine different framing standards to cover specific aspects of cold-formed steel framing. However, AISI S now incorporates an exception for a built-up axial load bearing section comprised of two studs oriented back-to-back forming an I-shaped cross-section.


This has been an often asked question by framing design engineers. The simple reason is, it was easier to develop small single-topic documents versus a more comprehensive multi-topic document.

The chapter also includes:. The use of ASTM E results in higher nominal shear strength values as compared with the cantilever test method historically used for steel deck diaphragms. Effective strip method model for steel-sheet sheathing. But, why would AISI develop six discrete framing standards as opposed to one design manual?

The ends of a built-up compression member are connected by a weld having a length not less than the s231-07 width of the member or by connectors spaced longitudinally not more than 4 diameters apart for a distance equal to 1. Format defines design aiei. This chapter provides installation requirements previously contained in the various framing standards. This new standard includes design zisi for wall systems, floor and roof systems, lateral force-resisting systems, as well as truss and header assemblies.

This method provides an alternative approach to determine the shear wall strength, especially for those that are outside the limitations of the tested systems. The other standards addressed such topics as a code of standard practice, the definition of standard product, and prescriptive design for residential applications. For roof or floor diaphragms with a maximum aspect ratio of 4: This article focuses on AISI S which s231-07 to cold-formed steel structural members subject to gravity loading, wind loading, and seismic loading, except when specific seismic detailing is required.

This computational method is applicable for walls sheathed with steel sheet.
