Subject: RE: dual grade steel A992??
The ASTM A992 steel is new, issued in early 1999. It isn't listed in any of
the current AISC Specs because of their age. It will be listed in the new
AISC LRFD Spec when it comes out this summer, and the new AISC Seismic
Provisions when issued. It's also listed in AWS D1.1:2000 as prequalified.
