The concepts of cold-formed steel behavior and design are not typically taught in engineering schools and therefore engineers are often required to self-teach these concepts. Therefore, if you are an entry level structural engineer, or a seasoned veteran, this CFSEI lecture is intended to provide a fundamental understanding of the some of the behavior and design principles for cold-formed steel members and connections. Roger will draw on lecture materials used in his semester course and three-day short course to explain the unique aspects of cold-formed steel behavior and design principles of AISI S100.
Roger A. LaBoube, Ph.D., P.E., Curators’ Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus
Former Director, Wei-Wen Yu Center for Cold-Formed Steel Structures
Dr. Roger A. LaBoube is Curators’ Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering and former director of the Wei-Wen Yu Center for Cold-Formed Steel Structures (CCFSS) at the Missouri University of Science & Technology, formerly known as the University of Missouri-Rolla. Dr. LaBoube holds B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla. He 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; wall studs; and bolt, weld, and screw connections. Dr. LaBoube is active in several professional organizations and societies, including membership on the American Iron and Steel Institute’s (AISI) Committee on Specifications and as chairman of AISI’s Committee on Framing Standards. He is a registered Professional Engineer in Missouri. Dr. LaBoube is a frequent presenter of CFSEI webinars, answers questions from engineers through the CFSEI Hotline, and remains active in developing cold-formed steel standards through the AISI Committee on Framing Standards.
