Cold Formed Steel Design Fourth Edition

Cold Formed Steel Design Fourth Edition 

This fourth edition of the book has been prepared to provide
readers with a better understanding of the analysis and
design of the thin-walled, cold-formed steel structures that
have been so widely used in building construction and other
areas in recent years. It is a revised version of the first
author’s book, Cold-Formed Steel Design, third edition,

published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. in 2000. All the revi-
sions are based on the 2007 edition of the North American

Specification with Supplement No.1, which combines the
allowable strength design (ASD), the load and resistance
factor design (LRFD), and the limit states design (LSD)

material was originally developed for graduate
courses and short courses in the analysis and design of
cold-formed steel structures and is based on experience
in design, research, and development of the American
Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) and North American design
Throughout the book, descriptions of the structural
behavior of cold-formed steel members and connections
are given from both theoretical and experimental points
of view. The reasons and justification for the various
design provisions of the North American specification are
discussed at length.
