I've heard that the Canadian Standards Association Standard CAN3-S16.1, Steel Structures for Buildings specifically prohibits designers from using yield test results for design or, presumably, for checking existing structures. That is, the "specified minimum yield strength" (such as that from the appropriate ASTM or equivalent standard) must be used, regardless of actual material yield. Also, AISC defines Fy as the "Specified minimum yield stress of the type of steel being used," which seems to imply what the Canadians have explicitly stated. I'd appreciate your comments on the use of actual material yield test results, from either mill certs or an appropriately designed sampling program. tnhanc(--nospam--at)alaska.net David Evans, P.E. ...
