Session Start Date

10-17-1996

Abstract

The first edition of the AISI specification was adopted in 1946. Thus, the new specification represents fifty years of progress in the formal structural application of cold-formed steel. The continued efforts of the Committee on Specifications and the sponsorship of the American Iron and Steel Institute have made this fifty years of progress in cold-formed steel a reality. The new specification combines ASD and LRFD provisions in a single document. This affords the design engineer the opportunity to become familiar with both methods and facilitates the use of whichever method is preferred. In addition, the new specification includes a number of new or revised provisions based on the results of continuing research.

The 1996 AISI Specification

The first edition of the AISI specification was adopted in 1946. Thus, the new specification represents fifty years of progress in the formal structural application of cold-formed steel. The continued efforts of the Committee on Specifications and the sponsorship of the American Iron and Steel Institute have made this fifty years of progress in cold-formed steel a reality. The new specification combines ASD and LRFD provisions in a single document. This affords the design engineer the opportunity to become familiar with both methods and facilitates the use of whichever method is preferred. In addition, the new specification includes a number of new or revised provisions based on the results of continuing research.
