UNT's College of Engineering joins the Cold-Formed Steel Research Consortium

Under the direction of Cheng Yu, associate professor and coordinator of the construction engineering technology program, UNT's College of Engineering has joined the Cold-Formed Steel Research Consortium. The consortium brings together leading research teams to provide the world's most comprehensive research on cold-formed steel structures.

Cold-formed steel is an economical and recyclable material used in buildings, bridges, storage racks, car bodies and transmission towers, among other structures.

Consortium partners include Johns Hopkins University, Virginia Tech, the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, Northeastern University and McGill University.
