Bracing Cold-Formed metal constructions: A layout consultant records the present practices regarding bracing cold-formed metal constitution parts and structures. for plenty of engineers the layout of buildings utilizing cold-formed metal is obvious as a frightening job. This file seeks to take away a few of the perceived secret through supplying without difficulty priceless details for bracing those constructions. Heavy on purposes and examples, this ebook comprises layout examples illustrating bracing layout for varied different types of cold-formed metal constructions, in addition to an in depth record of fundamental reference resources. This record is gifted as a layout consultant and may help the practising engineer in designing cold-formed metal buildings with larger degrees of reliability, defense, and economic climate. subject matters contain: • advent to Bracing layout • Cold-Formed Framing • Cold-Formed metal in steel development platforms • Miscellaneous Cold-Formed metal parts and structures

These systems often have the advantage of rapid installation, and are becoming more popular. The strength of these assemblies may be determined from principles of mechanics or through published test data available from the product manufacturer. In addition to strength provisions, the Standard has equations for calculating design deflections, based on recent research. While the basics of load transfer in steel-framed shearwalls is similar to that encountered in wood-framed shearwalls, the thin-walled nature of the framing elements requires some extra consideration in the design of the boundary elements and loadtransfer mechanisms (See Figure 2-18).

Occasionally cold-formed steel members are found in the primary framing of short span buildings. The most commonly used sections are C and Z sections, typically with equal, parallel flanges, however sections with nonparallel and unequal flanges are sometimes used for eave struts. The design of these members is governed by the North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members (AISI 2004c). The Specification provides design requirements for several common bracing applications found in metal buildings.

1 Screwed Through the Punchout Bridging It is common practice to bridge studs using 1-1/2" x W x 54 mil cold-rolled channels installed through the web punchouts. The channel is connected to the stud web by a cold-formed angle, typically 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" in dimension, although 2" x 2" angles are also commonly used. Thicknesses range from 33 mils to 68 mils, with 54 mils being the most common. Angle lengths are usually V4" shorter than the stud depth, although shorter or longer lengths are also encountered.
