The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) has announced Supplement No. 1 to AISI S100-16, North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members, 2016 Edition, has been published and is available for download.
According to the AISI press release, The North American Specification harmonizes cold-formed steel design technology across the United States, Canada and Mexico, allowing for faster introduction of new technologies as well as opening up the market for a variety of derivative products such as design aids and educational materials.
Implications of Supplement No. 1 to AISI S100-16:
- Clarifies the requirements for strength increase from cold work of forming and for members with holes.
- Removes provisions for power-actuated fasteners (PAFs) in concrete to avoid potentially unconservative designs or unintended interpretation of the validity of the provisions in different applications.
Where can I obtain a copy of Supplement No. 1?
Supplement No. 1 can be downloaded free of charge at www.aisistandards.org as a stand-alone document, or incorporated into the 2016 edition of the North American Specification.
