Cold-Formed Steel Design aims to promote higher education in cold-formed steel structural design and to encourage students to use creative thinking skills to solve engineering problems.
The 2015 CFS Design Competition is open to all full-time students at all levels. All student entrants are required to work on the problem individually,no team designs will be accepted. The task is to design a cold-formed steel clip angle for maximum nominal shear strength per unit weight (Vn/W) with high fabrication feasibility. The winning designs should have a combination of high nominal shear strength per unit weight and high fabrication feasibility. The final ranking of each design will be based on the sum of 80% of its rank in unit strength and 20% of its rank in fabrication feasibility. The rank for fabrication feasibility will be decided by the judges.
