We explore, in this paper, the demands and behavior on fasteners supplying sheathing-based bracing of gravity loaded cold-formed studs and wall assemblies. The studies are carried out by shell finite element (FE) models, which are compared to analytical solutions and previously completed laboratory tests conducted by the authors. The connection between the sheathing and the stud should be able to develop enough resistance to restrain global buckling of the studs; therefore, special attentiondoi:10.1590/1679-78252428 fatcat:hwzu2eoa7bharedj5gvvlaaqoe
