AISI updates six cold-formed steel design standards

AISI updates six cold-formed steel design standards

(Posted on 10/01/21)

The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) has updated six cold-formed steel design standards.

AISI serves as the voice of the American steel industry in the public policy arena and advances the case for steel in the marketplace as the preferred material of choice. AISI also plays a lead role in the development and application of new steels and steelmaking technology.

AISI is an accredited consensus organization by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for developing American National Standards (ANS). The task of creating and updating cold-formed steel design standards is accomplished through two voluntary consensus committees—the AISI Committee on Specifications and the AISI Committee on Framing Standards. The standards are available for free download at https://www.cfsei.org/free-aisi-standards.  

“These updated standards have been approved by ANSI and adopted into the 2021 International Building Code,” said Jay Larson, P.E., F.ASCE, managing director of AISI’s Construction Technical Program. “They include the most up-to-date industry research and state-of-the-art practices and reflect significant changes that ensure steel’s reliability and competitiveness with other materials in the construction market. We appreciate the work of all the researchers who helped expand the body of knowledge and the diligence of the members of the AISI Committee on Specifications and the AISI Committee on Framing Standards in considering proposed changes, reviewing comments, and refining the provisions of these important standards.”
