The newly published Supplement No. 1 to AISI S100, North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members, 2007 Edition, is available as a free download on the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) website, www.steel.org. (Select the “Shop AISI” tab or click here.)
The supplement adds the provision for determining the safety and resistance factor for partition walls, and updates the reference to Supplement No. 1 of AISI S123, the North American Cold-Formed Steel Framing Standard-Lateral. The Specification harmonizes cold-formed steel design technology among the U.S., Canada and Mexico, allowing faster introduction of new technologies and opening up the marketplace for a wide variety of derivative products such as design aids and educational materials.
