RE: Structural Steel Design Code - Canada

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

S16-09, "Design of Steel Structures" by CSA is similar to AISC360.

"Hand of Steel construction"  by CISC is similar to AISC Steel Construction 
 Manual.  This gives all the Sections(metric) and the equivalent AISC shapes. 

There is a Canadian equivalent  of COSP.
"CISC Code of Standard Practice".  This publication is included in Part 7 
of the Handbook of Steel Construction, 10th Edition.

         Go to and ask the people themselves.
