Cold-formed steel (CFS) is the common term for products made by rolling or pressing thin gauges of sheet steel into goods. Cold-formed steel goods are created by the working of sheet steel using stamping, rolling, or presses to deform the sheet into a usable product. Cold worked steel products are commonly used in all areas of manufacturing of durable goods like appliances or automobiles but the phrase cold form steel is most prevalently used to described construction materials. The use of cold-formed steel construction materials has become more and more popular since its initial introduction of codified standards in 1946. In the construction industry both structural and non-structural elements are created from thin gauges of sheet steel. These building materials encompass columns, beams, joists, studs, floor decking, built-up sections and other components. Cold-formed steel construction materials differ from other steel construction materials known as hot-rolled steel. The manufacturing of cold-formed steel products occurs at room temperature using rolling or pressing. The strength of elements used for design is usually governed by buckling. The construction practices are more similar to timber framing using screws to assemble stud frames. Cold Formed Steel is one of the sub track under Steel Construction track in OMICS group conference.Topics like: Duplex Stainless Steel, Building information modeling, Green construction are of interest.
OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.
Scope & Importance:
Cold-formed steel members have been used in buildings, bridges, storage racks, grain bins, car bodies, railway coaches, highway products, transmission towers, transmission poles, drainage facilities, various types of equipment and others. These types of sections are cold-formed from steel sheet, strip, plate, or flat bar in roll forming machines, by press brake (machine press) or bending operations. The material thicknesses for such thin-walled steel members usually range from 0.0147 in. (0.373 mm) to about ¼ in. (6.35 mm). Steel plates and bars as thick as 1 in. (25.4 mm) can also be cold-formed successfully into structural shapes (AISI, 2007b).
Some of the main properties of cold formed steel are as follows:
This biannual event brings together leading scientists, researchers, educators and engineers in the field of research and design of cold-formed steel structures to discuss recent research findings and design considerations. Twelve technical sessions covering a wide variety of topics and interests will be presented during the two-day event.
The construction industry of UAE witnessed construction contract awards to the tune of USD 40 billion in 2012, which is expected to increase to USD 50 billion by 2015, with bulk of the projects likely to be awarded over 2014 and 2015. Construction sector as a percentage of GDP of the UAE reached 10.5% in 2009 and 10.25% in 2011 while for 2015 and 2020 the sector’s contribution as a percentage of UAE GDP is projected to record 11.1% and 11.45% respectively. According to global market analysis, in 2014, the industry is expected to generate revenue of approximately 156.12 billion U.S. dollars. According to statistical record, in 2013 most of the regions including North America, South America, South Africa, MENA faced a growth of 4.5%, 5.0%, 6.0% and 5.5% respectively in construction Industry. That year revenue generated by global construction industry was around 124.69 billion USD.
