Cold-Formed Steel (CFS) Tools: Download Design Guides and other Technical Documents

Are you interested in finding additional resources for the design of cold-formed steel members? In the September 2016 SE University session, Roger LaBoube, PhD, PE, from Missouri University of Science & Technology, gave a presentation on Design Aids and Design Examples for Cold-Formed Steel.  He reviewed the resources available to structural engineers from various organizations and gave references for design examples that are highly sought after by design engineers.  Most of these documents are found through the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI), the Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI), or the Steel Framing Alliance (SFA).

The various references that Roger discussed are shown below, and included for your convenience are the direct links to access and purchase or download the documents:
