RE: Structural Steel Design Code - Canada

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
CSA S16 is analogous to AISC 360.  S136 is analogous to AISI spec but I think 
 all of that is rolled into the North American Spec nowadays.  The cold-formed 
 portion is used when checking members with slender elements.  If you stick 
 to mill shapes you may not need this reference if you don't already have 

They do have a CISC Code of Standard Practice

They also have a Handbook of Steel Construction (similar to SCM from AISC). 
 This handbook does also have a copy of the CISC Code of Standard Practice 

Hope this helps,

Quick question.

Is CSA S16 analogous to AISC 360 for design of structural steel, or are there 
 other standards that should be considered? Is there something akin to AISC 
 303 "Code of Standard Practice" in Canada?

Is there a similar publication to the AISC "Steel Construction Manual" for 
design of steel in Canada?
