AISC's Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges
The American Institute of Steel Construction, which was
founded in 1921, publishes a Code of Standard Practice.
The first edition of which was published in 1924. The current
edition was published in 2010. The Code sets forth trade
practices in the structural steel design community and the
construction industry. The current Code is the result of
deliberations and the establishment of consensus among a
diverse group of design and industry representatives on
the AISC Code Committee.
The Code provides a framework for an understanding of
common acceptable standards for use when contracting for
structural steel. Unless specific provisions to the
contrary are provided in the contract documents, the
provisions of the Code are considered to be the
standard custom and usage of the industry and are
thereby incorporated into the relationships between
the parties to a contract for the provision of
fabricated/erected structural steel.
Additionally, the fabrication and erection tolerances
in the Code are incorporated into the AISC Specification
for Structural Steel Buildings by reference. Although
the Code applies to both buildings and bridges, this
webinar will focus on buildings.
