Seminar Description

The American Iron and Steel Institute’s Committee on Framing Standards has developed 2015 editions of the suite of cold-formed steel framing design standards (S220-15, S240-15, S400-15) and the Committee on Specifications has developed S310-15 for diaphragm design, as well as a 2016 edition of the North American Specification (S100-16). This presentation will discuss the scope and some of the changes to these design standards. Specific reference will be provided to clarify adoption of the standards in the 2018 International Building Code.

The presentation will highlight available design aids provided by AISI such as AISI D110-16, Cold-Formed Steel Framing Design Guide, which has been updated to reflect the design requirements of AISI S100-2012 and AISI S240-2015. Another excellent source for design examples is the Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute Tech Notes which will also be addressed by the presentation.
