AISC Design Guide 27: Structural Stainless Steel
Description

Design Guide 27, Structural Stainless Steel, provides guidance for the design of structural stainless steel. It is written for engineers experienced in the design of carbon steel structural components but not necessarily in the design of stainless steel structures, and is aligned with the design provisions in the 2010 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings. It applies to the design of structural hot-rolled or welded open sections such as I-shaped members, channels, and equal-leg angles. It also applies to rectangular and round hollow structural sections (HSS). The guidance provided is applicable to austenitic, duplex and precipitation hardening stainless steel structural sections with thickness 1/8 in. (3 mm) and greater. Major topics covered are material behavior and selection, cross-section design, member design, connections, and fabrication. Design Examples are also included.

AS/NZS 4673:2001 Cold Formed Stainless Steel Structures (Australia and New Zealand code)
Description

This resource provides the design criteria for the determination of strength of stainless steel members and connections used for load carrying purposes in buildings in Australia and New Zealand. Members can be cold formed to shape from annealed and cold rolled sheets, strips, plates or flat bar material. Mechanical properties are given in the annealed condition for austenitic grades (304, 316, 304L and 316L), ferritic grades (409 and 430), duplex grades (EN 1.4462) and the weldable structural steel grade (EN 1.4003). Based on test results of welded connections, an appendix is included which allows the nominal strength of tubular joints in CHS, SHS and RHS to be calculated using the provisions of Annex K of ENV 1993-1-1.

BS PD 6484:1979 Commentary on Corrosion at Bimetallic Contacts and its Alleviation
Description

This resource provides guidance on the avoidance of situations in which corrosion may arise from bimetallic contacts between different metals and alloys. It discusses the environmental conditions which may lead to such corrosion and gives advice on its alleviation. Annotated tables give the likely behaviour of various couples in five different environments.

Eurocode 3 EN 1993-1-4 Design of steel structures, Supplementary rules for stainless steels
Description

EN 1993-1-4 gives supplementary provisions for the design of buildings and civil engineering works from stainless steel, extending the application of EN 1993-1-1 and EN 1993-1-3 (which cover structural design of hot-rolled and welded carbon steel sections and structural design of cold-formed light gauge carbon steel sections respectively).   Austenitic grades 1.4301, 1.4401 and duplex grades1.4462 and 1.4362 are covered. Also covered are the low carbon grades and stabilized grades, e.g. 1.4541 and 1.4571.

Execution of Stainless Steel Structures (ED018)
Description

This document gives the clauses relating to stainless steel structures in EN 1090 Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures. Part 2: Technical requirements for the execution of steel structures with accompanying commentary. Additionally, it provides a set of optional and additional clauses that may be used in drawing up execution specifications for stainless steel structures, in conjunction with EN 1090-2, for individual projects. The clauses represent an industry 'best practice' view of how the general requirements of EN 1090-2 may be modified and supplemented, where permitted by that Standard, to achieve the quality and reliability to be expected for stainless steel structures designed in accordance with the Structural Eurocodes.

SANS 10162-4 Structural use of steel - Part 4: The Design of Cold-Formed Stainless Steel Structural Members (South African code)
Description

This resource is part of the design standard SABS 0162. It applies to the design, based on limit-states, of structural members of cold-formed stainless steels (austenitic and ferritic type 3CR12) sheet, strip or plate up to 25mm in thickness, intended for load carrying purposes in buildings. Supplementary standards can be used for applications other than buildings.

SEI/ASCE 8-02 Specification for the Design of Cold Formed Stainless Steel Structural Members (US standard)
Description

This resource provides the design criteria for the determination of strength of stainless steel members and connections for use in buildings and other statically loaded structures in the US. It includes the load and resistance factor design (LRFD) method and the allowable stress design (ASD) method. Members can be cold formed to shape from annealed and cold rolled sheets, strips, plates or flat bar material.  Austentic grades (201, 301, 304, 316 and ‘Nitronic 30’) are covered, in the annealed and cold rolled condition. Ferritic grades (409, 430, 439) are also covered in the annealed condition only.
