One Replaces Five: Free Cross Reference List Correlates 2005 Specification To Past AISC Specifications

December 08, 2005 From American Institute of Steel Construction, Inc.

A new reference is available to accompany the 2005 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings (ANSI/AISC 360-05) to assist users in getting more acquainted with the new standard. A cross-reference list that compares the new specification table of contents to the corresponding sections, where applicable, of past specifications is now posted on the AISC web site. Cross references are given to the following five standards that the 2005 AISC Specification replaces:

    • 1989 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings-Allowable Stress Design and Plastic Design
    • 1989 Specification for Allowable Stress Design of Single Angle Members
    • 1999 Load and Resistance Factor Design Specification for Structural Steel Buildings
    • 2000 Load and Resistance Factor Design Specification for Steel Hollow Structural Sections
    • 2000 Load and Resistance Design Specification for Single-Angle Members.

The organization of the new standard is very similar to both the 1989 ASD Specification and the 1999 LRFD Specification, with the major changes occurring in the content of the Appendices. Single angle and hollow structural section (HSS) criteria are intermingled in the various design chapters, with a special new Chapter K covering HSS connection design exclusively. Please visit www.aisc.org/2005spec to download the new Specification and the cross-reference list.
