Maintain your skepticism and read June 98, AISC Modern Steel Construction, "Economics of Low-Rise Buildings". The maximum savings is about 20%, but even that is a stretch. The average savings is about 17.8%.

Regards, Bill >> I agree with this statement. Did the author of the comparison check to ensure that the original design was not overly conservative when done as Working Stress? If I was to check the first steel beam I ever designed-today, using the same exact code, I could probably find a 40% savings!!!!! We also know that the time frame on some jobs is "Make it Stout..and Get it OUT"....I am curious about the scope of the comparison. That is a lot of savings... Name withheld in case the first person I ever worked for is reading......
