Development and Application of Cold-Formed Steel Structure Dwelling System


Article Preview

Cold-formed steel structure dwelling system is becoming the major development trend of steel structure for its lightweight, long durability and quick construction. In this paper, the development process of technology and application of cold-formed steel structure dwelling system in China and abroad is introduced. Compared with developed countries there is great disparity in this area.
