Although stainless steel has been used for structural applications in the U.S. since the early 1900s, only with the upcoming publication of AISC’s Steel Design Guide 27: Structural Stainless Steel (expected to be available by mid-September) will architects and engineers have a resource dedicated to the design of hot-rolled and welded stainless steel open sections and hollow structural sections and their connections.
To coincide with the release of this much-awaited document, the Steel Institute of New York is offering a full-day seminar on September 18 at the McGraw-Hill Auditorium in NYC. This program, presented by the Steel Institute of New York, the Ornamental Metal Institute of New York, and AISC — the organizations that joined forces to sponsor the development of the design guide — offers the design community an introduction to the new guide by its writers and includes case studies on projects from around the world illustrating various structural applications.
You still have time to take advantage of early registration pricing for this seminar, which is currently being offered at a reduced rate of $200 until this Friday, August 23. Then pricing will increase to $250 for members (applies to members of AIA, AISC, ASCE, NCSEA, SEAoNY, and SEI) and $275 for non-members.
