Aug, By Rob Madsen P. Manley, P. This consolidated seismic design standard brings together all North American cold-formed steel seismic-force-resisting systems SFRS into one standard, adding a consistent capacity-based design philosophy to each. It provides U.

AISI Standard S addresses the design of lateral force resisting systems to resist wind and seismic forces in a wide range of buildings constructed with cold formed steel framing. In addition to incorporating research findings on diagonal strap-braced walls, other major changes in Supplement No 1 include: 1. Rd values in Table A for diagonal strap-braced concentric walls were adjusted to match the values approved by the Canadian National Committee on Earthquake Engineering for inclusion in the National Building Code of Canada seismic provisions 2.
Language in C1. The existing provisions on setbacks in Section C2, which the AISI Committee on Framing Standards thought should be limited to prescriptive methods with defined limits of applicability, were replaced with a requirement deemed to be more appropriate for a design standard 4.
Adjustments were made to Table C2. The designation thickness for stud, track and blocking associated with the existing tabulated values was increased from 33 mils min. New values were added for designation thickness for stud, track and blocking equal to 33 mils min 5. Equation C2. Customary and SI units 6. The word countersunk was deleted and commentary added to clarify provisions for tapping screws to attach wood structural panel sheathing in Section C2.
Language in C3. The design provisions of Section C5. A definition for amplified seismic load was added under Section A2, Definitions Equation D2. We appreciate the work of each of the committee members and the support of the Steel Framing Alliance and Canadian Sheet Steel Building Institute in bringing these documents to the marketplace.
