This volume reveals the behaviour and design of cold-formed steel structures, connections and systems. It describes the AISI Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members published in July 2000, which governs the design of all cold-formed steel frames, including roof, wall and racking systems, and cold-formed steel residential construction in the USA. The text offers worked examples which can be programmed using MATHCAD or EXCEL.
