ASCE Seeks Comments on Updated Steel Cables Standard

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is seeking public comments through March 16 on an update to the ASCE/SEI standard, Structural Applications of Steel Cables for Buildings (19-10).

The standard provides requirements for the structural design, contract documents, shop drawings, fabrication and installation of cables for use as static structural elements for the support and bracing of buildings and other cable-supported structures not subjected to vehicle loads. It is applicable to roofs, floors, curtain walls, masts and nets. Requirements for earthquake load resistant sway bracing design for nonstructural components of buildings are also provided.

Accessing the Public Comment System will require using or creating an ASCE web user account. For questions, contact ASCE’s James Neckel at or 703.295.6176.
