Full Description A. In this Specification, bracketed terms are equivalent terms that apply particularly to LSD. The nominal strength [resistance] and stiffness of cold-formed steel components such as elements, members, assemblies, connections, and details shall be determined in accordance with the provisions in Chapters B through M, Appendices A and B, and Appendices 1 and 2 of the Specification. Where the composition or configuration of the components is such that calculation of available strength [factored resistance] or stiffness cannot be made in accordance with these provisions excluding those in Chapter K , structural performance shall be established from one of the following: a Available strength [factored resistance] or stiffness by tests only. Specifically, the available strength [factored resistance] is determined from tested nominal strength [resistance] by applying the safety factors or the resistance factors evaluated in accordance with Section K2. Specifically, the available strength [factored resistance] is determined from the calculated nominal strength [resistance] by applying the safety factors or resistance factors evaluated in accordance with Section K2.
