American Institute of Steel Construction

This Specification is based upon past successful usage, advances in the state of knowledge, and changes in design practice. The 2010 American Institute of Steel Construction’s Specification for Structural Steel Buildings provides an integrated treatment of allowable stress design (ASD) and load and resistance factor design (LRFD), and replaces earlier Specifications. As indicated in Chapter B of the Specification, designs can be made according to either ASD or LRFD provisions.
This Specification has been developed as a consensus document to provide a uniform practice in the design of steel-framed buildings and other structures. The intention is to provide design criteria for routine use and not to provide specific criteria for infrequently
encountered problems, which occur in the full range of structural design.
This Specification is the result of the consensus deliberations of a committee of structural engineers with wide experience and high professional standing, representing a wide geographical distribution throughout the United States. The committee includes approximately
equal numbers of engineers in private practice and code agencies, engineers involved in research and teaching, and engineers employed by steel fabricating and producing companies. The contributions and assistance of more than 50 additional professional volunteers
working in ten task committees are also hereby acknowledged.
