Stainless Steel Standards

Structural stainless steel is increasingly popular, and AISC is committed to ensuring that designers have the latest guidance. The release of ANSI/AISC 313, Code of Standard Practice for Structural Stainless Steel Buildings, and ANSI/AISC 370, Specification for Structural Stainless Steel Buildings, in 2021 underscored that commitment. 

Design Guide 27, second edition, Structural Stainless Steel, functions as the Steel Construction Manual for the new Stainless Steel Specification (ANSI/AISC 370). It contains many design aid tables and is a tremendously valuable resource for anyone interested in designing with structural stainless steel.
