Composite system of Profiled Steel SheetDry Board (PSSDB) is a system composed of profiled steel sheet (PSS) and dry board(DB), attached together by self-tapping or self-drilling screws.PSS, the most significantstructural component of this system is currently sourced from the available profiles in local markets. Yet, it is apparent that manufacturing specific PSS for this system can result in a more economical system. This paper investigates the effect of varying cross-sections of PSS on the PSSDB system regarding ultimate load carrying capacity (strength) and (weight) of the system.
