Steel-framing guide updated

The newest addition of the American Iron and Steel Institute’s (AISI’s) Brick Veneer Cold-formed Steel Framing Design Guide is now available. This guide updates 2003’s Steel Stud Brick Veneer Design Guide. The resource will be especially useful for structural engineers and architects when using brick veneer anchored to a backing of cold-formed steel framing in their designs. Included in the updated edition are general guidelines, a review of building principles, and design examples of various system elements. The information is focused on commercial and high-rise residential projects. The guide is endorsed by Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry (AWCI), Canadian Sheet Steel Building Institute (CSSBI), North American Steel Framing Alliance (NASFA), Steel Framing Industry Association (SFIA), and Steel Stud Manufacturers Association (SSMA).
