Tech Note W600-21: Cold-Formed Steel Load-Bearing Wall Design


Summary: This Technical Note has been written to help cold-formed steel (CFS) engineers further their understanding of structural load-bearing CFS walls. Given the myriad of details required for such structures, the importance of proper design and analysis of load-bearing CFS members cannot be understated. This Technical Note will discuss the various design considerations that must be taken into consideration during the design phase of such structures.

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.
