Presented by Larry W. Williams, APR

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explore the inherent fire resistance of cold-formed steel frame assemblies, using ASTM test standards.
  2. Investigate how the principles of acoustical performance combine to provide high Sound Transmission Classification (STC) assemblies.
  3. Review the basic structural procedures to design and detail a simple non-structural cold-formed steel assembly.
  4. Envision the required steps to control moisture migration in a cold-formed steel framed assembly.
