This paper summarizes a number of recent experimental and numerical investigations into the structural behaviour of cold-formed steel structures with bolted connections conducted by the authors, and all of them focus on the efficient use of bolted moment connections between cold-formed steel sections. It aims to present the latest analysis and design techniques as well as some practical design guidance and considerations on the overall performance of cold-formed steel structural systems. Hence, researchers and designers are encouraged to exploit the structural benefits offered by cold-formed steel structures with practical and efficient moment framing in building construction.
