This Standard addresses the design and construction of cold-formed steel members and connections used in the seismic force resisting systems in buildings and other structures. In this edition, the Standard is focused on the Special Bolted Moment Frame (SBMF) System, which is widely used in industrial work platforms. In Supplement No. 1, revisions and additions were made to ensure that the application of the design within the configurations were used in the initial research of special bolted moment frames. The Commentary on the Standard is also included, which provides important background materials. The application of this Standard should be in conjunction with AISI S100-07, North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members. This Standard was reaffirmed in 2012.
