Section 2211 Cold-Formed Steel Light-Frame Construction

However, rather than add to the complexity of the AISI Specification, it was decided that a new family of standards should be developed. Powered by WordPress and the Graphene Theme. The list s2111 these standards, as well as other excellent design guides, are provided. Aii is credited with helping to pioneer and expand the use of cold-formed steel framing in structural and nonstructural applications. For more information, visit www. Participants are eligible for 1.

Although the AISI Specification had gained acceptance and was in widespread use, there were a number of design issues that were not adequately addressed for this emerging market. The presenter is Roger A.

The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute comprises hundreds of structural engineers aissi other design professionals who are finding a better way to produce safe and efficient designs for commercial and residential structures with cold-formed steel.

Therefore AISI extended its standards development activity to support the growing needs of the cold-formed steel framing industry.
