Tucson Chapter Lunch Meeting: 


Specify & Install Structural Steel Studs Per ASTM C955 & C1007

Many factors must be considered when your design includes cold-formed structural steel framing members.  An architect typically specifies that the framing must conform to C955 and C1007. This course will review the manufacture and installation requirements of structural steel studs per these ASTM standards based upon IBC 2012.  It will also examine fire-rated assembly construction and loading capacities.

Learning Objectives:

  • What are the IBC 2012 Code Compliance requirements for cold-formed structural studs
  • What four criteria must be met in order for a structural stud to be in conformance with the physical requirements governed by ASTM C955
  • What are the minimum installation requirements for cold-formed structural steel studs as established by ASTM C1007 
  • How to evaluate when a fire-rated assembly requires a reduction in load carrying capacity
