Tech Note W105-21: Design of Nonstructural Members


Summary: The AISI S220, North American Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Nonstructural Framing was developed in 2011 to help clearly delineate and eliminate confusion between the requirements for cold-formed steel structural members and nonstructural members. This Technical Note is intended as an introduction to this standard and as an illustrative guide for applying the provisions to the design of nonstructural members.

This Technical Note updates and replaces CFSEI Technical Note W105-13

Disclaimer: Designs cited herein are not intended to preclude the use of other materials, assemblies, structures or designs when these other designs demonstrate equivalent performance for the intended use. CFSEI documents are not intended to exclude the use and implementation of any other design or construction technique.
