Smail Kechidi describes his research into cold-formed steel-framed shear walls sheathed in timber, which won the Institution’s Research into Practice essay competition in 2021.

Synopsis

Smail Kechidi describes his research into cold-formed steel (CFS)-framed shear walls sheathed in timber, which won the Institution’s Research into Practice essay competition in 2021. The research has focused on the lateral behaviour of CFS-framed shear walls and the performance of the sheathing-to-CFS screws.
