D4.C. Canadian Codes - Cold Formed Steel Design per S136-94
STAAD.Pro is capable of performing steel design based on the Canadian code S136-94 Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members, including revisions dated May, 1995. The program allows design of single (non-composite) members in tension, compression, bending, shear, as well as their combinations. For laterally supported members in bending, the Initiation of Yielding method has been used. Cold work of forming strengthening effects have been included as an option.
