ASCE "Journal of Structural Engineering" Features Special Section on Research Advances in Cold-Formed Steel Applications

In a special section in the May 2013 issue of the Journal of Structural Engineering (Vol. 139, Issue 5, pp. 637-864), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) takes a comprehensive look at new advancements in cold-formed steel structural engineering. The special section was put together by guest editors Benjamin W. Schafer, Ph.D., P.E., professor and chair of the Department of Civil Engineering at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD; and Dinar Camotim, Ph.D., M.ASCE, professor in the Department of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Georesources at the Instituto Superior Tecnico in Lisbon, Portugal.

There have been considerable advances in structural engineering topics related to cold-formed steel applications. This special section provides an excellent representative sample of the newest and most relevant analytical, numerical and experimental original research on the behavior and design of cold-formed steel structures. The section includes articles from researchers in 13 countries, located on four continents. There are 18 technical papers and one technical note that cover members (columns and beams), panels, frames, walls, shear walls and connectors.
