Designing stainless steel structures is going to get a lot easier!

The development of the first U.S. design specification for hot rolled, welded and hollow structural stainless steel sections is well underway and will be published in 2021.

As a first step to remedying this situation, the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) commissioned Nancy Baddoo of the UK’s Steel Construction Institute (SCI) to write an AISC Design Guide on structural stainless steel, DG27, which was published in 2013. The interest in this guide led to AISC deciding in 2018 to develop a full design specification for structural stainless steel.
