    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out minimum requirements for the design of structural members cold-formed to shape from carbon or low-alloy steel sheet, strip, plate or bar not more than 25mm in thickness and used for load-carrying purposes in buildings.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out minimum requirements for the design of structural members cold-formed to shape from carbon or low-alloy steel sheet, strip, plate or bar not more than 25 mm in thickness and used for load-carrying purposes in buildings. It is also applicable for structures other than buildings, provided appropriate allowances are made for dynamic effects.This Standard does not apply to the design of structures subject to brittle fracture.
