AISI Test Procedures for Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members and Connections


Over time the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) has developed a series of test procedures for determining the strength, stiffness and properties of cold-formed steel members and connections. These test procedures provide both an alternative for designing cold-formed steel members and structures and effective tools for research and development. Since 2001, four new test procedures have been developed and four previously published test procedures have been updated. for the convenience in document referencing, a new clarifying numbering system was established for all the AISI test procedures. in addition, all the published AISI test procedures have been approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as American National Standards (ANS). This paper provides an overview for the new developed test procedures and summarizes the changes made to the previously published ones.
