Formatted abstract
This project report optimises the current thin-walled cold formed section through the utilisation of theoretical analysis by using Thin-Wall Program and Direct Strength Method (DSM). No physical testing is done in this project. The aim of this project is to observe an optimize section for use as wall studs in housing construction. The optimized section has a typical dimension of the critical height of a timber stud, 2400mm, 2700mm, and 3000mm, which are currently using in housing construction. A 170mm flat plate of 0.55mm thick steel cold formed into a ‘c’ section with a 90mm constant height is used for optimized.
