The North American Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Framing – Nonstructural Members, AISI S220, has been adopted into IBC 2015. AISI S220 was created to help delineate and eliminate the confusion between the engineering principles and requirements for cold-formed steel structural members and nonstructural members. The webinar will address the basic behavior of composite vs non-composite wall assemblies, as well as design requirements that differ between the structural and nonstructural member.
Presenter: Roger LaBoube, Ph.D., P.E.
Wei-Wen Yu Center for Cold-Formed Steel Structures
Roger LaBoube, Ph.D., P.E. is Curator’s Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering and Director of the Wei-Wen Yu Center for Cold-Formed Steel Structures at the Missouri University of Science & Technology (formerly University of Missouri-Rolla). Dr. LaBoube holds B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla. Dr. LaBoube has an extensive background in the design and behavior of cold-formed steel structures. His research and design activities have touched on many facets of cold-formed steel construction including cold-formed steel beams, panels, trusses, headers, and wall studs as well as bolt, weld, and screw connections. He is active in several professional organizations and societies, including membership on the American Iron and Steel Institute’s Committee on Specifications for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members and chairman of the AISI Committee on Framing Standards. He is a registered Professional Engineer in Missouri.
