Calculation Parameter Analysis of Cold-Formed Steel Stud Walls

Based on the finite element analysis on the SSG wall, SSO wall and DSGO wall, a series of parameter analysis were done to study the influence of the steel strength, stud spacing, stud height, and screw spacing on the shear resistance of walls.
