ASTM A6/A6M covers mill requirements for structural steel, including dimensional tolerances on the cross-section of structural shapes, the quality requirements and the type of mill conditioning permitted. The FAQs in this section include a discussion of portions of these provisions and the work required either when supplied material does not meet the tolerances specified or when more restrictive tolerances are specified.
The AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings and Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges cover the requirements for fabrication of structural steel. The FAQs in this section include a discussion of portions of these provisions and subsequent recommendations.
The AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings, the Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges, AWS D1.1/D1.1M, and other existing specifications and codes cover tolerance requirements for the fabrication and erection of structural steel. The FAQs in this section include a discussion of portions of these provisions and subsequent recommendations.
The structural steel fabrication industry has traditionally achieved a remarkable degree of dimensional accuracy in the fabrication and erection of steel structures. This is particularly evident when considering the variety and levels of skills essential to coordinate and perform the planning, detailing, fabrication, and erection of many unique and complex steel buildings, bridges, and other special structures.
The AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings covers requirements for the design of structural steel members. The FAQs in this section include a discussion of portions of these provisions and subsequent recommendations. Additional information on specific topics of interest can be found in the AISC Design Guide Series.
The AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings covers requirements for the design of structural steel connections. Additional recommendations can be found in the AISC Steel Construction Manual. The FAQs in this section include a discussion of portions of these provisions and subsequent recommendations with regard to general issues in connection design, fabrication, and erection. For bolting- and welding-specific issues, refer to the FAQs in Section 6 and Section 8, respectively.
The AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings and the RCSC Specification for Structural Joints Using High Strength Bolts cover requirements for the use of bolts in structural steel connections. The FAQs in this section include a discussion of portions of these provisions and subsequent recommendations. Some of the discussion is taken from Bolt Bulletins published by RCSC.
The AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings and AWS D1.1/D1.1M cover requirements for the use of welding in structural steel connections. AISC Design Guide 21 contains useful discussion, background, and recommendations regarding welding. The FAQs in this section include a discussion of portions of these provisions and subsequent recommendations.
The AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings and AWS D1.1/D1.1M cover requirements for the inspection of welding in structural steel connections. The FAQs in this section include a discussion of portions of these provisions and subsequent recommendations.
The AISC Specification and various Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) documents cover requirements for the painting of structural steel. The FAQs in this section include a discussion of portions of these provisions and subsequent recommendations.
The Steel Structures Painting Manual and SSPC surface preparation standards serve as generally workable and practical guides for the surface preparation and painting of fabricated structural steel. Although they have removed a great deal of the misunderstandings that once occurred in this area, there are still varying interpretations that may arise. The FAQs in this section provide AISC recommendations for clarification and resolution of several problem areas.
Strategies for blast protection have become an important consideration for structural designers as global terrorist attacks continue at an alarming rate. Conventional structures, particularly those above grade, normally are not designed to resist blast loads; and because the magnitudes of design loads are significantly lower than those produced by most explosions, conventional structures are susceptible to damage from explosions. With this in mind, developers, architects and engineers increasingly are seeking solutions for potential blast situations, to protect building occupants and the structures themselves.
The questions and answers that follow offer some explanation of explosions and the potential dangers they present to steel-framed buildings. They cover the historical response of steel-framed structures to blast situations and which types of structural frames, connections and steel shapes best resist blast loads. They also examine strategies designers can use to implement heightened building security and greater structural resistance to blast threats. Design specifications, code requirements, progressive collapse, seismic requirements and composite construction also are considered. Lastly, a list of references on the topic of blast protection is provided, along with information about computer software programs that can aid designers.
The module outlines the motivations for PtD, encourages inclusion of worker health and safety considerations early in the design process, and identifies hazards associated with the construction of structural steel elements. Topics include the structural design, detailing, fabrication and erection processes. Examples are provided to enable structural engineers and detailers to incorporate PtD into their steel designs.

The HS Hanger Selector app from Simpson Strong-Tie joins a family of software and web application technologies that deliver innovative, cost-effective product and design recommendations for any project. Whether building in wood, concrete, cold-formed steel, or structural steel, these solutions make it fast and easy for architects, engineers and contractors to complete any job.
Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, has expanded its lineup of rigid connector angles with the addition of the RCA-C, an ideal solution for attaching cold-formed steel (CFS) stud framing to concrete supports.
Because of the unique nature of this mitigation approach and the fact that the structural response is impacted, it is imperative that a structural engineer play the leading role in specifically designing the methodology for a given ASR-affected structure. Cracking due to ASR may not only have an impact on the performance of a given structure, but the cracks serve as access points by which water, external alkalies, chlorides, and sulfates can enter the concrete, exacerbating ASR and potentially leading to other forms of distress, such as frost attack, salt scaling, and corrosion of reinforcing steel. To address this cracking, one can seal the cracks to minimize the ingress of external water and dissolved ions - the use of caulking or flexible grouts is preferred over rigid polymer- and cement-based grouts because the rigid nature of the latter materials and strong bonding with the substrate concrete often forces cracks to appear adjacent to the grouted area.
where W(X) is the weight of the structure; X is the vector of design variables taken from W-shaped sections found in the AISC design manual ; ne is the number of members; ρ is the material mass density; Lj and Aj are the length and the cross-sectional area of the member j, respectively.
