HSS Design Guides

 

In an effort to promote the steel industry by advocating the use of HSS, AISC has partnered with CIDECT (International Committee for the Development and Study of Tubular Structures) to disseminate their published design guides free of charge to AISC members. The guides are published internationally and are not in accordance with AISC Specifications nor reviewed by AISC. However, they are a great resource for any engineer looking into non-typical HSS connections and systems.
