Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Stainless Steel Structural Members
8-02 provides design criteria for the determination of the strength of stainless steel structural members and connections for use in buildings and other statically loaded structures. The members may be cold-formed to shape from annealed and cold-rolled sheet, strip, plate, or flat bar stainless steel material. Design criteria are provided for axially loaded tension or compression members, flexural members subjected to bending and shear, and members subjected to combined axial load and bending. Uses Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) and the allowable stress design (ASD) methods.
