ACSFA President, Cheng Yu, Ph.D., P.E. is invited to make a presentation at AISI (American Iron and Steel Institute) Online Research Session on July 1, 2020, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT. Dr. Yu’s presentation is about new design methods on the clip angle connectors in cold-formed steel framing construction. The new methods are based on Dr. Yu’s previous work and provided more comprehensive solutions for a common connection with seemingly little attention given to it. Dr. Yu’s previous work were published as AISI Research Reports in 2015 and 2018.

  • CFS Clip Angles with Multiple Lines of Screws (UNT) by Cheng Yu
  • Steel Stud Assemblies Bearing on Conc. Slabs Phase 2 (UM-A) by Kara Peterman
  • CFS Design using Discrete and Sheathing Bracing (JHU) by Ben Schafer
