The previous design standards limited their application to framing aisu having a maximum base steel thickness to mils 0. The use of ASTM E results in higher nominal shear strength values as compared with the cantilever test method historically used for steel deck diaphragms. This method provides an alternative approach to determine the shear wall strength, especially for those that are outside the limitations of the tested systems. This computational method is applicable for walls sheathed with steel sheet.
Format defines design considerations. The other standards addressed such topics as a code of standard practice, the definition of standard product, and prescriptive design for residential applications.
Effective strip method model for steel-sheet sheathing. The chapter also aii.
For roof or floor aisj with a maximum aspect ratio of 4: The truss component structural performance load test and full-scale truss confirmatory test methods, previously included in AISI S, are provided in this appendix. This chapter contains design, manufacturing quality criteria, and installation requirements aissi cold-formed steel trusses as previously included in AISI S The method assumes a sheathing strip carries the lateral load via tension field action.

Also, for ease of use, S contains a section reference table between the S provisions and the previous provisions Table 2. The exception applies where the built-up section is seated properly in a track, and the top and bottom end bearing detail of the studs consists of a steel or concrete support with adequate strength and stiffness to preclude relative end slip of the two built-up stud sections.
This new standard includes design provisions for wall systems, floor and roof systems, lateral force-resisting systems, as well as truss and header assemblies. Sheathing and discrete bracing. This appendix contains requirements for the determination of the rotational stiffness that structural sheathing provides to framing members to facilitate the design for distortional buckling.
Inthe manufacturing tolerance values were extended to the flange width and stiffening lip length. It outlines the scope, which is for design and installation of cold-formed steel framing of a floor and roof systems, b structural walls, c shear walls, strap braced walls, and diaphragms to resist in-plane lateral loads, and d trusses for load-carrying purposes in buildings.

Six of these standards addressed the design of structural aizi, such as general provisions, wall studs, floor joists, trusses, headers, and shear walls. The simple reason is, it was easier to develop small single-topic documents versus a more comprehensive multi-topic document. But, why would AISI develop six discrete framing standards as opposed to one design manual? Beneficial for ausi design engineer is a new Effective Strip Method that enables the calculation of the nominal in-plane shear wall strength for Type I shear walls Figure 2.
However, AISI S now incorporates an exception for a built-up axial load bearing section comprised of two studs oriented back-to-back forming an I-shaped cross-section. First Name Last Name.
For curtain wall systems, the standard now permits the use of the bracing combination of sheathing attached to one side of the wall stud and discrete bracing for the other flange Figure 1. This has been an often asked question by framing design engineers. This chapter contains design aiei for cold-formed steel framing members and assemblies, as previously included in AISI S, S, S, and S The discrete braces are limited to not greater than 8 feet 2.

The ends of a built-up compression member are connected by a weld having a length not less than the maximum width of the member or by connectors spaced longitudinally not more than 4 diameters apart for a distance equal to 1. The effective strip method is permitted to be used within the following range of parameters:. This chapter provides installation requirements previously aisii in the various framing standards.
