Steel Construction Manual, 15th Edition
Your authoritative manual for the design and construction of steel structures!
Introducing the 15th Edition of the Steel Construction Manual!
This is the authoritative manual you need when you are designing and constructing steel structures.
Published since 1927, the Steel Construction Manual has been the source for the standard specifications of steel use including the AISC Code of Standard Practice.
Included are the following standards in their entirety:
- ANSI/AISC 360-16: Specification for Structural Steel Buildings
- 2014 RCSC Specification for Structural Joints Using High-Strength Bolts
- ANSI/AISC 303-16: Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges
Updates to the Steel Construction Manual include:
- Expansion of compressive strength tables to include 65- and 70-ksi steel for a limited number of shapes
- ASTM A6/A6M-14 standards are applied to shape information
- Compliance to the 2016 Specification for Structural Buildings has been applied to all tabular information and discussions
Part 1 updates:
- Larger pipe, HSS and angle sizes are now in the dimensions and properties tables.
Part 6 updates:
- The width-to-thickness slenderness limits now has a new design aid.
- There is now a table that indicates the available shear strength, available compressive strength, available tensile strength and available flexural strength.
Part 9 updates:
- Coped beam design now has a new approach.
- Connection design based on plastic strength approach now has a new interaction equation.
In general, here is a list of topics that the Steel Construction Manual covers:
- Structural Steels
- Dimensions for Detailing
- Properties for Designing
- Double Angles
