4 The objective of this paper is to provide a robust design method for walls framed from cold5 formed steel (CFS) stud and track that utilize traditional sheathing materials as the primary 6 means of bracing against compressive load. Existing design methods are unable to handle dis7 similar sheathing attached to the CFS stud flanges (e.g., oriented strand board (OSB) on the 8 exterior face and gypsum board on the interior face) and provide no clarity on the impact of key 9 properties including… CONTINUE READING
