The LGSI, Light Gage Structural Institute, is no longer an active organization. The LGSI was formed in 1989 and was a nonprofit organization composed of member companies who manufacture light gage cold-formed sections. The LGSI contracted with Loseke Technologies, Inc. to create the "Light Gage Structural Steel Framing System Design Handbook", which contained the following information about cold-formed sections: (Gross Section Properties, Torsional Properties, Bending and Axial Properties, Combined Shear and Bending, Combined Axial and Bending, Web Crippling, Axial Capacities, Simple Span Capacities)
