New Steel Specification Now Available For Free Download

June 21, 2005 From American Institute of Steel Construction, Inc.

The new AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings (ANSI/AISC 360-05), is now available for free download on the AISC web site by visiting www.aisc.org/2005spec.

This specification includes updated design provisions, and incorporates both allowable stress design (ASD) and load and resistance factor design methods (LRFD), and the design provisions for hollow structural sections and single angles. For this reason, this new specification supersedes the following five existing AISC specifications (and all previous versions of these Specifications):

    • Load and Resistance Factor Design Specification for Structural Steel
      Buildings dated December 27, 1999;
    • Specification for Structural Steel Buildings – Allowable Stress
      Design and Plastic Design dated June 1, 1989, including Supplement
      No. 1;
    • Specification for Allowable Stress Design of Single Angle Members
      dated June 1, 1989;
    • Load and Resistance Factor Design Specification for Single-Angle Members
      dated November 10, 2000; and
    • Load and Resistance Factor Design Specification for the Design of Steel
      Hollow Structural Sections dated November 10, 2000.

The new specification has been approved by the AISC Committee on Specifications and is ANSI-accredited.
