Exterior cold-formed steel framing is a common system used for the “skin” of a building and is a crucial component of a building’s exterior. Structural engineers need to pay particularly close attention to this system as it is a significant factor in repair costs and recovery times after seismic and wind events, yet it is often not given the attention it deserves. This webinar discusses the following key design issues (and what’s often missed) for exterior cold-formed steel framing, including:

  • Application of Loads
  • Building movements
  • Complete load path
  • Engineered and proprietary connections to the base structure (including drift clips)

Over one-third of the presentation detaileds examples that illustrates these concepts as well as common mistakes.

Kirsten Zeydel, S.E. is the President of ZO Consulting and a Structural Consultant with S.K. Ghosh Associates. She is a licensed Structural Engineer, based in Southern California, with over twenty years of experience in the design of cold-formed steel framing. She has led the structural design of exterior/interior non-load-bearing and load-bearing cold-formed steel framing for buildings across the United States. She has also successfully taken many projects through the rigorous California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development and the California Division of the State Architect. In practice, Kirsten Zeydel specializes in panelized cold-formed steel construction and the design/coordination of exterior building “skins” in order to ensure they perform as expected during earthquakes and wind events.
