AISC 2016 Standards
Jonathan Tavarez, EIT - Staff Engineer - American Institute of Steel Construction
This presentation highlights some of the important changes in the 2016 AISC 360 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings, ranging from updated material standards to new shear strength provisions. It also explores the changes in the 2016 AISC Code of Standard Practice, including two of the most significant: the generalization of the AISC Code of Standard Practice to include use of models, either in place of drawings or in combination with them; and an expansion of architecturally exposed structural steel (AESS) requirements to provide multiple levels of finish. The process of developing and adopting these standards is also discussed.
