(Chicago, IL) – This season, become more informed, more efficient, and a better structural engineer with AISC’s annual Spring Seminar Series. No matter what type of building you’re designing, nowhere else will you learn to leverage your professional knowledge with the 14th Edition Steel Construction Manual, apply welding applications for cost-efficient design or delve into design concepts and connections for seismic braced frames – all while learning from masters in these topics, in person. Organized by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), the Spring 2013 Seminar Series will be offered in 12 cities around the U.S. from March to June. Act now and you’ll receive a $50 early registration discount when you register at www.aisc.org/seminars; the discount is valid until February 22.
(Chicago, IL) – More than 150 detailed design examples, updated dimensions and properties of structural sections, and other useful resources that complement the 14th Edition Steel Construction Manual, are now at your fingertips. Design Examples V14.0 and Shapes Database V14.0, as well as Reference Lists contained in the latest edition of the Manual, are available for free downloading on AISC’s website at www.aisc.org/manual14. The 14th Edition Manual was released this past summer and is available in hardcover or as a digital download at www.aisc.org/manuals.
(Chicago, IL) – While there’s no substitution for attending NASCC: The Steel Conference in person, AISC offers the next best thing. As a benefit for attendees and members, we audio tape most of the presentations and synchronize them with the speakers’ PowerPoint presentations. We then post the recorded sessions online at www.aisc.org/2011nascconline (you can find previous conference seminars online by visiting www.aisc.org/freepubs and clicking on “online conference proceedings”).
The AISC steel Construction Manual, 14th Edition is now available. The AISC website describes the additions in the 14th edition.
This Manual is the fourteenth major update of the AISC Steel Construction Manual, which was first published in 1927. Replacing the 13th Edition Manual, the 14th Edition Manual contains several updates and revisions, including the new HP18 and HP16 series, updated connection tables based on increased bolt shear strength values, revised single-plate and extended single-plate connection design procedures, enhanced prying action procedure, and a revised bracket plate design procedure.
The following specifications, codes and standards are printed in Part 16 of this Manual:
*2010 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings, including the new Chapter N on QC and QA, expanded composite design provisions, and improved slip-critical connection provisions
*2009 RCSC Specification for Structural Joints Using High-Strength Bolts
*2010 AISC Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges
Mark Sept 23 on your calendars for Steel Day. Some of this year’s topics include Steel Making and Recycling, HSS Producers, Steel Service Centers, BIM, Steel Fabrication, Advanced Machinery and Robotics, and Steel Installation.
(Chicago, IL) – Have you seen what the structural steel industry can do? SteelDay is your opportunity. The industry’s largest educational and networking event returns for a third successive year this September 23. Hosted by the American Institute of Steel Construction, its members and partners, SteelDay is a national event for the design and construction community to explore the structural steel supply chain firsthand.
Starting this year, SteelDay can be found on Facebook. Simply search for “SteelDay” at www.facebook.com and “Like” the fan page to access SteelDay photos, updates, and discussions. You can also keep in touch with SteelDay on Twitter (www.twitter.com) @SteelDay.
The 14th Edition of the Steel Construction manual is scheduled for availability on July 1. From AISC:
(Chicago, IL) – AISC’s 14th Edition Steel Construction Manual will be available in hard copy format on July 1. Once the 14th Edition is available, AISC will no longer ship the 13th Edition Steel Construction Manual. All orders for the 13th Edition must be received before July 1. Orders for the 13th Edition may be placed through AISC’s online bookstore, here.
RISA News has published an article about automating the application of notional loads to a RISA-3D model:
In RISA-3D you can automatically apply notional loads to your structure to comply with your steel code (such as AISC 360). Notional loads take into account a building’s actual out-of-plumbness by adding de-stabilizing lateral loads. The AISC 360 recommends either 0.2% or 0.3% of the vertical loads be applied at each floor level.
You can quickly add these loads to your model by going to the Insert menu and selecting Notional Loads.
AISC Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings (ANSI/AISC 341-05) are available on the AISC website for free.
This ANSI-approved specification is a companion to the Specification for Structural Steel Buildings (ANSI/AISC 360-05) that extends coverage to the connection detailing and member design requirements for structural steel and composite structural steel and reinforced concrete systems in high-seismic applications. This new standard, dated March 9, 2005, replaces and updates the 2002 Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings as well as incorporating provisions for two new systems: buckling-restrained braced frames and special plate shear walls. Supplement No. 1, dated November 16, 2005, is incorporated into the new seismic provisions which affects only the section on ordinary concentrically braced frames (OCBF). (5.2MB, 330 pages )
The AISC has made the 2010 Specification freely available on their website.
2010 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings (ANSI/AISC 360-10)
This specification provides the generally applicable requirements for the design and construction of structural steel buildings and other structures. The 2010 edition of the AISC Specification and Commentary supersedes and is an update of the 2005 edition. Both LRFD and ASD methods of design are incorporated. Dual-units format provides for both U.S. customary and S.I. units.
