CFSEI to Host Webinar on Cold-Formed Steel Curtain Wall Design on June 6, 2013

WASHINGTON, DC, June 3, 2013 —The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) will host a webinar on “Cold-Formed Steel Curtain Wall Design” on Thursday, June 6, 2013 at 3:00 PM Eastern Time. The webinar will cover stud design, top track design, design of openings, bridging and other topics. Example calculations covering studs, top track, connections and openings will be provided. Participants are eligible for 1.5 continuing education units.

The webinar will be based on information contained in AISI S100, North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members; AISI S211, North American Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Framing – Wall Stud Design; and various CFSEI Technical Notes.

The presenter is Sutton Stephens, Ph.D., P.E., S.E., chief engineer at Pacific Northwest Engineering, Inc. Stephens has 28 years of experience in the structural engineering field. He has also taught structural engineering courses at Kansas State University and has authored several research papers. He is a member of the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) Committee on Framing Standards and chairs its Prescriptive Methods subcommittee. He served on the CFSEI Executive Committee for two years. More information on the webinar and registration details are available at www.cfsei.org.

The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute comprises hundreds of structural engineers and other design professionals who are finding a better way to produce safe and efficient designs for commercial and residential structures with cold-formed steel. CFSEI members work together to develop and evolve industry standards and design methods, produce and issue technical bulletins, and provide seminars and online training to improve the knowledge and skills base of engineers and design professionals.
