Thin-walled cold-formed steel (CFS) section construction has gained popularity as light weight construction with high
stiffness and easy erection and installation. During earthquake, vibration causes to and fro motion which brings pinching
effect in CFS structures. The capacity of CFS structure to dissipate energy in elastic range is less and their dissipation capacities
in inelastic range need to be considered. Performance based design is a more general design philosophy in which design criteria
are expressed in terms of performance objectives, like lateral deflections, inter-storey drifts, element ductility, and element
damage indices, when the structure is subjected to different levels of seismic hazard. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the
performance of cold-formed steel (CFS) structures and based on its performance decide which type of performance is required
in a particular hazard level or seismic condition and thereafter design the structure. The goal of a performance-based design
procedure is to produce structures that have predictable seismic performance under multiple levels of earthquake intensity. In
order to do so, it is important that the behavior of the structures is targeted in advance, both in elastic as well as the inelastic
ranges of deformation. It is very essential to understand first, the performance of CFS in seismic conditions and to evaluate
the performance, various methods and analyses are required. So, different performance evaluation procedure is discussed.
Performance of different CFS structures is evaluated and their suitability in different occupancy conditions is discussed. Finite
element modeling is done using ABAQUS to observe the non-linear performance of CFS. Other analysis is done in SAP2000.
