(Chicago, IL) – The 2010 AISC standard, Specification for Structural Steel Buildings (ANSI/AISC 360-10), is now available for free downloading on the AISC website at www.aisc.org/2010spec.
“The 2010 AISC Specification contains few major revisions and continues to address both LRFD and ASD methods of design,” commented Cynthia Duncan, AISC director of engineering. “However, it includes new topics and updated design provisions important to the industry today such as structural integrity, new composite member provisions, revisions to slip-critical connection design provisions, as well as a new chapter on quality control and quality assurance.”
The 2010 Specification supersedes the 2005 version (ANSI/AISC 360-05). It has been approved by the AISC Committee on Specifications and is ANSI-accredited and forms the basis for the 14th Edition Steel Construction Manual, which is scheduled to be published in the third quarter of 2011.
Please visit www.aisc.org/2010spec to view and/or download the 2010 AISC Specification and Commentary as a PDF. The 2005 version and other related documents are also available for free downloading at www.aisc.org/freepubs.
