RE: STEEL STRESSES? IN 1900-1910 YEARS

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
AISC publishes (or at least did, I have a very old copy, ©1953) a book
called "Historical Record Dimensions and Properties Rolled Shapes - Steel
and Wrought Iron Beams and Columns, As Rolled in U.S.A., Period 1873 to
1952"   (now that's a title).  I work with alot of old structures and this
book has been very helpful.  Also, if you can get hold of an old copy of the
"Pocket Companion" put out by Carnegie Steel Company (are they still around
?) you will be set on section properties and tensile strengths.

STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS:

I am evaluating old steel framing which was built in NYC in 1900-1910 years.
What would be the steel stress values to be used, any good references, ANY
HELP.
Thanks in advance.

REGARDS,
Tahir
