The CISC Code of Standard Practice for Structural Steel is a compilation of usual industry practices relating to the design, fabrication and erection of structural steel. These practices evolve over time and are subject to change as methods improve. The Code is revised whenever a sufficient number of changes have occurred to warrant a new edition.
The following topics have undergone major revisions since the 7th Edition (2009):
– Conditions where lintels are included in a steel contract
– Computations of units and mass
– Erection stability
– Temporary bracing
– Electronic documents (BIM, Appendix J)
This publication is included in Part 7 of the Handbook of Steel Construction, 11th and 12th Editions.
