Re: Non US Steel Shapes

Your two biggest issues will be making sure they meet or exceed your U.S. ASTM material standards and that your detailer knows what shapes to work with when they produce their fabrication drawings.  Little dimensional differences can add up in certain situations.

Non US Steel Shapes

Fellow Engineers,
Are Non-US Steel Shapes accepted in the US? How should one go in having them accepted? By Non-US Steel Shapes I mean shapes manufactured in accordance with JIS (Japanese) standards, BS (British)standards, QB (Chinese) Standards, etc.
Thanks for any info!
