Innovative Cold-Formed Steel Framed Shear Wall Sheathed with Corrugated Steel Sheets: Experiments and Dynamic Analysis Cheng Yu 1, Guowang Yu 2, Jie Wang 3 Abstract . Cold-formed steel framed shear wall sheathed with corrugated steel sheets is a promising shear wall system for low- and mid-rise constructions in high wind Lateral loads are primarily resisted by roof diaphragms and shear walls in post-frame buildings. While a variety of sheathing materials can be used, most often corrugated steel sheets are fastened to the wood frame to form shear walls and diaphragms. The strength and stiffness of
