New Cold-Formed Steel Clip Angle Design Guide Published By AISI

aisi-clip-angle-design-guideWashington, DC - The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) has published AISI D114-21, “Cold-Formed Steel Clip Angle Design Guide, 2021 Edition,” a new publication that provides practical guidance on the design of cold-formed steel (CFS) clip angles based on research performed at the University of North Texas.

The design guide is available for purchase via the online AISI Steel Store at

Cold-formed steel clip angles are commonly used to connect CFS framing members in light-frame steel buildings or to attach secondary structural components in a conventional structural steel frame or reinforced concrete frame building. AISI D114-21 provides methods that are applicable for those clip angles that are used to transfer shear, compression, tension or a combination of these forces. Two practical design examples are provided. The guide is a useful tool for design engineers to properly design clip angles.
