RE: Steel Building in Alaska

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The Canadian Codes I believe have provisions for steel in cold climates. If
memory serves me you will need to specify steel that has chemical properties
that allow its use at those low temperatures. The problem is some steel
types get very brittle.HTH

Subject: Steel Building in Alaska


I am doing some preliminary work/research for a steel building to be located
in Alaska.  I have been told that the temperature can go as low as negative
60 degress F.  Are there any AISC publications or special requirements
(steel, bolts, welding, etc.) that I should be aware of?  I have tried the
AISC website and listserver archives but could not find anything.

Thanks in advance.
