STANDARD DRAWINGS COLD-FORMED STEEL
This Appendix links designers to a standard CADD library of Cold-Formed Steel details in
Intergraph format that are for general information only. These details are available to designers
for use in Military design projects. They were developed originally by AISI for residential
construction and should be modified according for larger projects. They include typical; floor,
roof, and wall framing, plans and elevations. Also included are typical roof truss elevations, and
connection details for floors, walls, openings, and roofs. Connection details can be fastened
using bolts welds, or screws. Punch-outs are not shown but are acceptable and vary in size and
configuration based on the manufacturer. Additional design and detailing is required before this
information can be used in construction documents. Neither the Corps of Engineers nor AISI is
responsible for the proper use of this information. Before specifying or using cold-formed material
a competent Structural engineer shall design and check the adequacy of the design and any cold-
formed component used in the design. Anyone using this information assumes all liability arising
from such use.
Details for moisture protection, thermal insulation, seismic conditions, and high wind conditions
are special requirements that need to be considered in any design using cold-formed steel.
Designers shall use the information from Chapter 4 and Appendix G when designing for moisture
protection and thermal insulation of steel stud systems.
