North American Specificationfor the Design of Cold-FormedSteel Structural Members
AISI S100-2007Approved in Canada by theCanadian Standards AssociationCSA S136-07Endorsed in Mexico by CANACERO
The material contained herein has been developed by a joint effort of the American Ironand Steel Institute Committee on Specifications, the Canadian Standards Association TechnicalCommittee on Cold Formed Steel Structural Members (S136), and Camara Nacional de laIndustria del Hierro y del Acero (CANACERO) in Mexico. The organizations and theCommittees have made a diligent effort to present accurate, reliable, and useful information oncold-formed steel design. The Committees acknowledge and are grateful for the contributionsof the numerous researchers, engineers, and others who have contributed to the body ofknowledge on the subject. Specific references are included in the

.With anticipated improvements in understanding of the behavior of cold-formed steel andthe continuing development of new technology, this material may eventually become dated. Itis anticipated that future editions of this specification will update this material as newinformation becomes available, but this cannot be guaranteed.The materials set forth herein are for general information only. They are not a substitutefor competent professional advice. Application of this information to a specific project shouldbe reviewed by a registered professional engineer. Indeed, in most jurisdictions, such review isrequired by law. Anyone making use of the information set forth herein does so at their ownrisk and assumes any and all resulting liability arising therefrom.

North American Cold-Formed Steel SpecificationJuly 2007 iii
North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members
as itsname implies, is intended for use throughout Canada, Mexico, and the United States. This
supersedes the 2001 edition of the
North American Cold-Formed Steel Specification,
theprevious editions of the
Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members
 published by the American Iron and Steel Institute, and the previous editions of CSA StandardS136,
Cold Formed Steel Structural Members,
published by the Canadian Standards Association.The
was developed by a joint effort of the American Iron and Steel Institute’sCommittee on Specifications, the Canadian Standards Association’s Technical Committee onCold Formed Steel Structural Members (S136), and Camara Nacional de la Industria del Hierroy del Acero (CANACERO) in Mexico. This effort was coordinated through the North AmericanSpecification Committee, which was made up of members from the AISI Committee onSpecifications and CSA’s S136 Committee.Since the
is intended for use in Canada, Mexico, and the United States, it wasnecessary to develop a format that would allow for requirements particular to each country.This resulted in a main document, Chapters A through G and Appendix 1 and 2, that isintended for use in all three countries, and two country-specific appendices (A and B). In thisedition of the
, what was previously Appendix C has been combined with AppendixA. The new Appendix A is for use in both the United States and Mexico, and Appendix B is foruse in Canada. A symbol (
) is used in the main document to point out that additionalprovisions are provided in the corresponding appendices indicated by the letters.This
provides an integrated treatment of Allowable Strength Design (ASD),Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD), and Limit States Design (LSD). This isaccomplished by including the appropriate resistance factors (
) for use with LRFD and LSDand the appropriate safety factors (
) for use with ASD. It should be noted that the use of LSDis limited to Canada and the use of LRFD and ASD is limited to the United States and Mexico.The
also contains some terminology that is defined differently in Canada, theUnited States, and Mexico. These differences are set out in Section A1.3, “Definitions”.The
provides well-defined procedures for the design of load-carrying cold-formed steel members in buildings, as well as other applications, provided that properallowances are made for dynamic effects. The provisions reflect the results of continuingresearch to develop new and improved information on the structural behavior of cold-formedsteel members. The success of these efforts is evident in the wide acceptance of the previouseditions of the
developed by AISI and CSA.The AISI and CSA consensus committees responsible for developing these provisionsprovide a balanced forum, with representatives of steel producers, fabricators, users, educators,researchers, and building code regulators. They are composed of engineers with a wide rangeof experience and high professional standing from throughout Canada and the United States.AISI, CSA, and CANACERO acknowledge the continuing dedication of the members of thespecifications committees and their subcommittees. The membership of these committeesfollows this Preface.
