Cold Formed Handbook

Cold Formed Handbook

Cold Formed Handbook

Hi All

Is "Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structures : To Australian/New Zealand Standard As/nzs 4600 2005" by GJ Hancock a good reference book to have for cold formed member design? Does it include examples?

Kind regards

RE: Cold Formed Handbook

If its the ASI publication, then its absolutely full of examples. A really good document in my opinion. Keep in mind that it's based on the 2005 version of the standard so won't reflect any of the recent updates (2018 edition) but apart from that no real complaints. I doubt it would get updated to a new edition anytime soon either.

You can download the table of contents from the link above to see what it contains of you have not found it already.
