AISI Updates Three Cold-Formed Steel Framing Design Standards
The American Iron and Steel Institute has published the 2012 editions for three of its cold-formed steel framing standards – AISI S200-12: North American Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Framing – General Provisions, AISI S201-12: North American Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Framing – Product Data, and AISI S214-12: North American Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Framing – Truss Design. The publications are available for purchase at the AISI Steel Store at www.steel.org. Each of the publications contains a description that highlights the changes made since its previous printing in 2007.
“These new editions reflect technological advancements made since the 2007 editions were printed,” said Jay Larson, P.E., F.ASCE, Managing Director, Construction Technical Program. “The advancements are the result of our industry’s ongoing support for research and development. These cold-formed steel framing standards are part of a comprehensive update and reaffirmation effort that we are executing for our complete suite of standards this year. They are intended for use in the United States, Canada and Mexico.”
