Continuing Education: 1.5 hours available

The North American Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Framing – Nonstructural Members, AISI S220, has been adopted into IBC 2015.  AISI S220 was created to help delineate and eliminate the confusion between the engineering principles and requirements for cold-formed steel structural members and nonstructural members.  The webinar will address the basic behavior of composite vs non-composite wall assemblies, as well as design requirements that differ between the structural and nonstructural member.
