Abstract

Title: Enabling Performance-Based Seismic Design of Multi-Story Cold-Formed Steel Structures (NEES-2010-0921)


Year Of Curation: 2014


Description: The goal of this research is to generate the knowledge needed to increase the seismic safety of buildings that use lightweight cold-formed steel (CFS) for the primary beams and columns, and enable engineers to account for complete building performance in predicting the response of these buildings to earthquakes. The U.S. academic research team is strengthened by collaboration with Canadian supported researchers at McGill University, and by the engagement and support of industry facilitated by the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) and Bentley Systems.
