Cold-formed sections of thin sheet steel are in demand in the structural steel field because of their favourable characteristics such as richness of shapes, lightness and variety of applications. Some technical difficulties are however still encountered. Design rules such as those given in the European Recommendations are complex, understood only by specialists, and both difficult and tedious to apply. Errors can easily occur during the long series of repetitive calculations required. Software has therefore been developed for the calculation of light gauge cold-formed steel sections based on the above Recommendations.
