# Cold-Formed Steel Stud / Column Calculator to AS 4600:2018

Easy to use online Cold-Formed Steel Stud / Column software for Australian & New Zealand standards.

### Description

Design and analyse cold-formed steel studs and columns to AS4600:2018 using the ClearCalcs cold-formed steel column calculator. With a database of all common Australian light gauge and cold formed sections, the calculator enables the easy modelling of axial loading on a cold-formed steel column with support for variable strong axis, weak axis, and torsional bracing.
