Bracing Cold-Formed Steel Structures: A Design Guide documents the current practices related to bracing cold-formed steel structure elements and systems. For many engineers the design of structures using cold-formed steel is seen as a daunting task. This report seeks to remove some of the perceived mystery by providing readily useful information for bracing these structures. Heavy on applications and examples, this book contains design examples illustrating bracing design for various types of cold-formed steel structures, as well as an extensive list of primary reference sources. This report is presented as a design guide and will assist the practicing engineer in designing cold-formed steel structures with greater levels of reliability, safety, and economy. Topics Include: • Introduction to Bracing Design • Cold-Formed Framing • Cold-Formed Steel in Metal Building Systems • Miscellaneous Cold-Formed Steel Elements and Systems.
