DESIGN OF COLD-FORMED LOAD BEARING STEEL SYSTEMS AND MASONRY VENEER / STEEL STUD WALLS
|Publication Date:||30 November 1998|
PURPOSE AND SCOPE. This document provides design guidance on the use of cold-formed steel systems for both load-bearing (Chapter 2) and nonload-bearing (Chapter 4) applications. Also, criteria are provided to use load-bearing systems in shear wall (Chapter 3) applications. The nonload-bearing application guidance in Chapter 4 also includes provisions for the masonry wythe and moisture protection of complete masonry veneer/steel stud curtain wall systems.
APPLICABILITY. These instructions are applicable to all elements responsible for the design of military construction. Exceptions to this criteria will require Corps of Engineers Headquarters (CEMP-ET) approval.
