The 2010 Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges (AISC 303-10) is now available. The PDF version can downloaded for free at www.aisc.org/freepubs.
The COSP, which is updated every five years, provides all involved in the design, purchase, fabrication and erection of structural steel with a current and useful framework for a common understanding of acceptable standards when contracting for structural steel.
Some of the most significant changes in this edition of the Code have to do with options for delegating connection design. Click here to read more on the AISC website about what’s new in the 2010 COSP.
