Supplement to AISC Nuclear Facilities Spec Available for Public Review
Posted by Tasha Weiss on May 2, 2014 at 1:28 PM.

A supplement to the AISC Specification for Safety-Related Steel Structures for Nuclear Facilities (ANSI/AISC N690-12) is available for public review from May 2 to June 19. Developed by an AISC Adhoc Subcommittee under Task Committee 12 - Nuclear Facilities Design and ultimately approved by the AISC Committee on Specifications, the draft supplement consists of a new appendix providing requirements for the design and construction of steel-plate composite walls. The system consists of two steel faceplates composite with structural concrete sandwiched between them for use in safety-related structures for nuclear facilities.

 

The supplement is available at www.aisc.org/N690S1PR1. Copies are also available (for a $15 nominal charge) by calling 312.670.5411. Please submit comments using the Public Review Comment Form to Janet Cummins, engineering and research coordinator, at cummins@aisc.org by June 19, 2014, for consideration.
