Lecture 16 - Page 1 of 13 Lecture 16 – AISC Code of Standard Practice Design, fabrication, and erection of steel-framed buildings should incorporate provisions of the AISC “Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges” and is found in AISC Spec. Section 16.3and also online at www.AISC.org. It was first published in 1924 and is now in its 6thedition, dated March 7, 2005. It provides a useful framework for the understanding of the acceptable standards for the construction of structural steel structures. It is useful for owners, architects, engineers, contractors, fabricators, construction managers and anyone else involved with construction using structural steel. The Code also serves as a basis for technical project specifications, typically CSI Specification Section 05100 – Structural Steel (see Lecture 17). A summary of the Code of Standard Practice is given below. GLOSSARYDefinitions and abbreviations of relevant terms used throughout the Code. Some important, (but often vague) definitions include: •AESS – Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel •Contract Documents •Design Drawings •EOR – Engineer-of-Record •Erection Drawings •Erector •Fabricator •Inspector •Owner •Owner’s Designated Representative for Construction •Owner’s Designated Representative for Design •RCSC – Research Council on Structural Connections •RFI – written Request for Information •SER – Structural Engineer-of-Record •Shop Drawings •Specifications •SSPC – Society for Protective Coatings (formerly Steel Structures Painting Council) •Steel Detailer •Structural Steel
