AISI S400-15 w/S1-16, North American Standard for Seismic Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Systems With Supplement 1, 2015 Edition addresses the design and construction of cold-formed steel structural members and connections used in the seismic force-resisting systems in buildings and other structures. The standard is to be used in conjunction with AISI S100-12, North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members, 2012 Edition and AISI S240-15, North American Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Structural Framing, 2015 Edition. It is intended for adoption and use in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
AISI S400-15 w/S1-16 resulted from the merging of AISI S110-07 w/S1-09, Standard for Seismic Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Systems―Special Bolted Moment Frames, 2007 Edition With Supplement 1-09, and the seismic portions of AISI S213-07 w/S1-09, North American Standard for Cold-Formed Steel Framing―Lateral Design, 2007 Edition With Supplement 1-09.
Additionally, many of the seismic design requirements stipulated in AISI S400-15 are drawn from AISC 341-10, Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings, which was developed by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).
