Steel Construction Manual 15th Edition is a reference that gives detailed information on how to make design calculations and design or shop drawings in structural steel. It is the most widely used source of information for designing and drafting steel-framed buildings and contains AISC design specifications for steel and useful information about steel and available shapes as well as charts tables and other drafting and design aids. The following specifications, codes and standards are printed in Part 16 of this Manual (i) 2016 AISC Specifications for Structural Steel Buildings; (ii) 2014 RCSC Specification for Structural Joints Using High-Strength Bolts; (iii) 2016 AISC Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges. The following major changes and improvements have been made to this revision:

  • All tabular information and discussions are updates to comply with the 2016 Specification for Structural Buildings, and the standards and other documents referenced therein
  • Shape information is updated to ASTM A6/A6M-14 throughout this manual. Larger pipe, HSS and angle sizes have also been incorporated into the dimensions and properties tables in Part 1
  • Compressive strength tables are expanded to include 65- and 70-ksi steel for a limited number of shapes
  • In Part 6, a new design aid is included that provides the width-to-thickness slenderness limits for various steel strengths
  • In Part 6, a new design aid is included that provides the available flexural strength, available shear strength, available compressive strength, and available tensile strength for W-shapes in one table
  • In Part 9, a new interaction equation is provided for connection design based on a plastic strength approach
  • In Part 9, a new approach to designing coped beams is presented based on recent studied.
