This paper presents a review of the proposed design for assessing the tensile capacity of a simply truss framing system of cold-formed steel. A series of connection tests were made to investigate the capacity of connections by its deformation and load caring capacity. Furthermore, Screw connections were compared to adhesive connections. Those were created of 1 screw to 3 installed screw using 8 mm screw. On the other hand, 50%, 75% and 100% percentage of adhesive, ie, A3M and ASK were also added to be evaluated. As a result, the experimental condition was carried out for developing a model to predict the performance capacity of each specimen. The test specimens are a single lap C connection with one end fixed by a grip, and the other end is tensioned. Each specimen was subjected to the load maximum capacity and the load deformation behaviour. The adhesive material was made of the total area of …
