Web Seminar: Design of Cold-Formed Steel Exterior Wall Connections
September 27, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
Exterior cold-formed steel framing is a common system used for the “skin” of a building and is a crucial component of a building’s exterior. Structural engineers need to pay particularly close attention to this system as it is a significant factor in repair costs and recovery times after seismic and wind events, yet it is often not given the attention it deserves. This web seminar will discuss the following key design issues (and what’s often missed) for exterior cold-formed steel framing, including:
- Application of Loads
- Building movements
- Complete load path
- Engineered and proprietary connections to the base structure (including drift clips)
Over one-third of the presentation will be on detailed examples that will illustrate these concepts as well as common mistakes.
