Number of pages: 334
The highly anticipated update to the primary reference for cold-formed steel design in Australia has been published, with the new 5th edition of ‘Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structures (to Australian / New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4600:2018) by Prof Gregory Hancock. The new edition has been comprehensively updated consistent with the recent revision of AS/NZS 4600:2018 and now reflects current best practice in the industry. This new edition builds on the previous edition, with an increase of 94 pages over the previous edition. The new edition has now also been printed in colour, to enhance technical understanding of photos and graphical output.
Significant revised and new material includes:
• Revisions in Chapter 9 on connections, chapter 10 on Direct Strength Method and chapter 11 on steel storage racking to reflect updates in AS/NZS 4600:2018
• A new Chapter 12 on Fire Design
• New design examples for screwed and PAF connections (Chapter 9), for DSM design of beam columns, beams in flexure and shear with and without holes and Z-section purlins (Chapter 10), for DSM design of a steel storage rack (Chapter 11) and for DSM design of a wall stud subjected to fire (Chapter 12)
• Reference to and examples from the newly developed computer program THIN-WALL-2
• Design examples in Chapters 4 to 8 on the effective width method have been fully aligned with the DSM examples in Chapter 10 to allow direct comparison between the two methods
For designers of cold-formed steel structures, including in particular those involved in the design of cold-formed light gauge mid-rise building construction, the ability to understand how best to derive enhanced capacity utilising the newer and extended DSM approach is a must-have skill. For those in manufacturing industries servicing the need for light gauge cold-formed steel construction, the imperative is equally important, opening up the ability to value engineer solutions for clients and differentiate service provision.
