D1.E. American Codes - Steel Design per AISI Cold Formed Steel Code

Provisions of the AISI S100 North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members, 2016 Edition have been implemented. The program allows design of single (non-composite) members in tension, compression, bending, shear, as well as their combinations using the LRFD Method. For flexural members, the Nominal Section Strength is calculated on the basis of initiation of yielding in the effective section (Procedure I).
Note: Design per the AISC 1996 code has been deprecated.
