Cold-formed steel (CFS) sections are lightweight material that are made by rolling or pressing thin gauges of sheet steel into goods in a room temperature environment that are usually manufactured into channel sections, Z-sections, hat sections and some other open sections. CFS usage has increased in the recent years as a structural frame not only for residential buildings but also for multi-storey commercial buildings. Therefore, the understanding of the behaviour of CFS sections especially in its connection are important to be studied. This paper describes the behaviour of CFS sections by reviewing the previous studies specifically on bolted connection of cold-formed steel sections, emphasizing on the design guidelines from Euro code 3: BS EN 1993-1-3 and Euro code 3: BS EN 1993-1-8. The findings from previous studies are discussed in this paper.
