The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) has updated 14 test standards in its S900-series, providing a complete series of updated test methods that supersede the previously published 2013 series. All test standards have been approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and are available for downloading free of charge.
“The AISI test standards are updated every five years to facilitate research and development leading to improved state-of-the-art solutions in steel for the construction market,” said Jay Larson, P.E., F.ASCE, Managing Director, Construction Technical Program. “We also updated the titles for the 2017 series, so they have a more consistent format but differ slightly from the titles in the previous series. The suite of test standards is often referenced in industry acceptance criteria, providing a level playing field for establishing the performance characteristics of unique products and applications.”
