Two new AISC stainless steel standards published

AISC (American Institute of Steel Construction) has published two new stainless steel standards.
ANSI/AISC 370-21 Specification for Structural Stainless Steel Buildings and ANSI/AISC 313-21 Code of Standard Practice for Structural Stainless Steel Buildings are available to download free of charge at Current Standards | American Institute of Steel Construction (
The availability of these eagerly anticipated standards will help engineers, materials specifiers and designers take full advantage of the outstanding properties of stainless steel in building, construction and large infrastructure projects such as bridges, opening up new opportunities for growth in these sectors. These codes are significant because they are the first US specifications for structural use of heavier gauge hot rolled and welded stainless steel sections. The AISC codes are also used by structural engineers in many other global regions.
