ASTM WK36850

    Revision of C955 - 11c Standard Specification for Load-Bearing (Transverse and Axial) Steel Studs, Runners (Tracks), and Bracing or Bridging for Screw Application of Gypsum Panel Products and Metal Plaster Bases

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C955 - 11c

    Developed by Subcommittee: C11.02 | Committee C11 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK36850

    1. Rationale

    The modifications to the penetration test in C 645 have been completed. The next step in this process is to modify C 954, C 955, and C 1002. In discussions at the task group level, it was requested that the penetration test be eliminated from C 955, as penetration and strip out problems with these studs are virtually non-existent. The task group discussed this and felt it was a reasonable request. This ballot item removes sections 5, 8, and figure 1 to comply with the task group decision.
