Continuing Education

Design of Structural Stainless Steel [N52]

When it comes to design, stainless isn't just another grade of steel. AISC has published Design Guide 27: Structural Stainless Steel to help engineers learn more about the use of this material. This session will compare the mechanical and physical properties of stainless steels with those of structural carbon steels. Attendees will learn how to select an appropriate stainless steel alloy for a specific project, the principles of designing stainless steel members and connections, and the special design rules for stainless steel in the design guide. The session will also cover fire resistant design. Design examples and case studies will be used to demonstrate the differences between designing with structural carbon steel and stainless steel.
