2 shows the effective widths of cold-formed steel shapes in bending. The effective width b of the compression flange depends on the normal stress f in the flange, the flat-width-to-thickness ratio (X1/X4), and the plate buckling coefficient. 2b represent shapes with stiffened and unstiffened compression flanges, respectively. 2) and the flat-width-to-thickness ratio (X2/X4). 95 for fully braced hat shapes), and Fy is the yield stress of steel. The dependence of effective widths on stresses means that Se (and other cross-sectional properties) cannot be calculated explicitly.

The topology of the neural dynamics model for optimization of cold-formed steel beams has one variable layer and NL constraint layers. 1. The nodes in each constraint layer correspond to the design constraints for a particular loading case. All constraint layers are fully interconnected with the variable layer. Both excitatory (having positive weights) and inhibitory (having negative weights) connections are used to link the nodes. In addition to the commonly used interlayer connections, recurrent connections are also used in the variable layer.

A project manager can then focus on achieving these targets by monitoring the progress of the resource utilization versus time plot. This plot provides essential information to the project manager regarding the current state of the project and its future trend, which is invaluable for project control. Because of the importance of the project time and cost, it is essential that these values are determined as accurately as possible during planning. Therefore, an essential component of project planning is time and cost estimation.
