Cold-Formed Steel Design, 3rd Edition by Wei-Wen Yu

By Wei-Wen Yu

The definitive textual content within the box, completely up to date and expanded
Hailed by means of pros all over the world because the definitive textual content at the topic, Cold-Formed metal layout is an essential source for all who layout for and paintings with cold-formed metal. No different publication offers such exhaustive assurance of either the speculation and perform of cold-formed metal development. up-to-date and increased to mirror the entire vital advancements that experience happened within the box during the last decade, this 3rd version of the vintage textual content will give you extra of the specified, up to date technical info and specialist assistance you must make optimal use of this enormously flexible fabric for development construction.
Wei-Wen Yu, an the world over revered authority within the box, attracts upon a long time of expertise in cold-formed metal layout, study, instructing, and improvement of layout requirements to supply counsel on all sensible facets of cold-formed metal layout for production, civil engineering, and construction purposes. during the e-book, he describes the structural habit of cold-formed metal participants and connections from either the theoretical and experimental views, and discusses the reason in the back of the AISI layout provisions. Cold-Formed metal layout, 3rd variation positive factors entire insurance of:
* AISI 1996 cold-formed metal layout specification with the 1999 supplement
* either ASD and LRFD methods
* the newest layout systems for structural members
* up-to-date layout info for connections and systems
* modern layout standards round the world
* the most recent computer-aided layout techniques
Cold-Formed metal layout, 3rd variation is an important tool-of-the-trade for structural engineers, brands, development managers, and designers. it's also an exceptional complicated textual content for college kids and researchers in structural engineering, architectural engineering, building engineering, and similar disciplines.

Example text

The current design methods for beams, columns, and beam-columns are discussed in Chap. 4, 5, and 6, respectively. 2 Torsional Rigidity Because the torsional rigidity of open sections is proportional to t 3, coldformed steel sections consisting of thin elements are relatively weak against torsion. 29 shows the twist of a channel-shaped unbraced beam when it is loaded in the plane of its web. In this case, the shear center is outside the web and the applied load initiates rotation. Because cold-formed steel sections are relatively thin and in some sections the centroid and shear center do not coincide, torsional–flexural buckling may be a critical factor for compression members.

174, Johnson has reviewed the previous research work together with the development of design techniques for cold-formed steel structural members. In 1993, AISI published a Guide for Preliminary Design of Cold-Formed Steel C- and Z-Members (Ref. 266). 2 Other Countries In other countries, research and development in cold-formed steel members, connections, and structural systems has been actively conducted at many institutions and individual companies during the past three decades. 199 and elsewhere.

15 ening and strain aging. In addition to strain hardening and strain aging, the changes in mechanical properties produced by cold work are also caused by the direct and inverse Bauschinger effect. The Bauschinger effect refers to the fact that the longitudinal compression yield strength of the stretched steels is smaller than the longitudinal tension yield strength, as shown in Fig. 17 The inverse Bauschinger effect produces the reverse situation in transverse direction, as shown in Fig. 17 The effects of cold work on the mechanical properties of corners usually depend on (1) the type of steel, (2) the type of stress (compression or tension), (3) the direction of stress with respect to the direction of cold work (transverse or longitudinal), (4) the Fu /Fy ratio, (5) the inside-radius-to-thickness ratio (R/t), and (6) the amount of cold work.
