Abstract

The American Iron & Steel Institute launched the Committee on Framing Standards in 1998 with the mission to eliminate regulatory barriers and increase the reliability and cost competitiveness of cold-formed steel framing through improved design and installation standards. Building on the internationally recognized AISI Specification, and working closely with the Steel Framing Alliance, Light Gauge Steel Engineers Association, Steel Stud Manufacturers Association and Canadian Sheet Steel Building Institute, this relatively new organization has developed and published four new ANSI-accredited consensus standards. Topics include General Provisions, Truss Design and Header Design, as well as a comprehensive Prescriptive Method for One and Two Family Dwellings. This paper provides an overview of these significant documents and describes the ongoing work of the committee.

AISI Committee on Framing Standards Enabling the Widespread and Economic Useof Steel Framing

The American Iron & Steel Institute launched the Committee on Framing Standards in 1998 with the mission to eliminate regulatory barriers and increase the reliability and cost competitiveness of cold-formed steel framing through improved design and installation standards. Building on the internationally recognized AISI Specification, and working closely with the Steel Framing Alliance, Light Gauge Steel Engineers Association, Steel Stud Manufacturers Association and Canadian Sheet Steel Building Institute, this relatively new organization has developed and published four new ANSI-accredited consensus standards. Topics include General Provisions, Truss Design and Header Design, as well as a comprehensive Prescriptive Method for One and Two Family Dwellings. This paper provides an overview of these significant documents and describes the ongoing work of the committee.
