AISC publishes new design guide

Now design professionals in the US have an authoritative resource on structural stainless steel, since the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) has published Design Guide 27: Structural Stainless Steel.
This new guide, authored by Nancy Baddoo, the associate director at the Steel Construction Institute, UK, instructs readers on the design of structural hot rolled or welded open sections such as I-shaped members, channels and equal-leg angles as well as rectangular and rolled hollow structural sections. Other major topics include material behavior and selection, cross-section design, member design, connections, fabrication and even design examples. The guide is aimed at engineers experienced in the design of carbon steel structural components, but not necessarily experienced in designing stainless steel structures.
Mr. Ted Galambos Ph.D, PE emeritus professor of structural engineering at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, has stated, “This document, for the first time in the US will show designers how to proportion stainless steel beams, columns, frames and connections that are fabricated from hot-rolled components. With this new design guide, it will be an easy task to expand the arsenal of engineers.”
