ASI Number: 122

Edition: 5th

This newly revised design aid to the limit states standard AS 4100-1998 considers open type hot-rolled sections and standard open sections manufactured from hot-rolled plate. Data includes among others: dimensions and section properties, design section capacities, values for fire design, design capacities for members subject to bending, shear, bearing, axial compression, axial tension and combined actions.

This new edition includes a significant number of tables and graphs to document the performance of the newly entered 350 Grade material for UB and UC sections, PFC sections, cut Tee sections, angle sections and TFB sections. The tables and table numbering were also re-arranged to better reflect a logical structure for the document given the new material provided. Section 9 has been updated to reflect new welding consumable strengths in the 2012 amendment to AS 4100.

The majority of data in this fifth edition has been recalculated to provide increased significant figures, updates based on known issues or new information not present in the previous edition (in particular the 350 Grade tables). The tables have been calculated and verified using CHECKSTEEL structural steel design software by Revolutio. All recalculated data has been rigorously checked against either existing data or data calculated using alternative means.

Design Capacity Tables for Structural Steel Volume 3: Simple Connections - Open Sections


Author = Hogan, T.J. and Munter, S.A.

Publisher = Australian Steel Institute

Date of Publication = 2007

ASI Number = 700

These tables aim to replace the simple connections section of AISC Standardised Structural Connections (3rd edition, 1985) and also provide typical details for web side plate, flexible end plate and angle cleat connections.

The capacity tables have been developed for selected connection configurations covering: steel grade, connection components such as plates or cleats, welds, bolts, hole geometry, bolt pitches and bolt gauges.

For a selected connection configuration, most design calculations are eliminated using the tables except for design checks which relate to the supporting member or general frame design. Information on the design model used for each connection can be found in the relevant design guide for that connection.

Design of portal frame buildings including crane runway beams and monorails

Author = Woolcock, S.T., Kitipornchai, S., Bradford, M.A. and Haddad, G.A.

Publisher = Australian Steel Institute

Date of Publication = 2011

ASI Number = 180

This book presents limit states design procedures for the design of portal frame buildings based on Australian standards. Portal framed steel clad structures are the most common type of industrial buildings. They find extensive use as industrial factory and warehouse structures, and as indoor sporting venues. The major components of a portal frame building are a series of parallel portal shaped frames as the major framing elements. Each frame is rigid, and resists horizontal wind forces and gravity loads in the plane of the frame by flexural action.

The new 4th edition has been almost completely rewritten to account for changes in the loading codes particularly the new wind code, the availability of new purlin and girt sections and ASIs publication of new connection manuals. New design capacity tables for horizontal SHS struts up to 400x16 Grade 450 SHS are included and design capacity tables for crane runway beams and monorails have been updated and expanded. The information and design guidance on monorail cranes has been significantly expanded and design examples added. A method of dealing with elongated local pressure patches is presented including patches with the new local pressure factor of 3.0. There has also been the opportunity to correct previous errors and to generally refine and update the previous edition.

Author = Hogan, T. J. 

Publisher = Australian Steel Institute

ASI Number = 745

Date of Publication = 2011

Design Guide 7 provides a recommended design model for pinned base plates for both open and closed column sections subject to compression and tension actions and completes the revision of Structural Steel Connections, 4th edition, 1994 (often referred to as the 'Green Book’). It also supplements Simple Connections, Part 1 of the existing ASI Connections series Parts 1 and 2, which, in addition to fully revising the Green Book, also contain connection design capacity tables.

The recommended design model for the pinned base plate connection is intended to give a realistic estimate of connection design capacity. Considerable effort has been invested in researching and developing the simple, yet satisfactory design model which can be justified on the basis of the available research and current design practice. The recommended design models draw extensively on the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Steel Design Guide 1 Base plate and anchor rod design and Steel Construction Vol.36 No.2 by Ranzi and Kneen.

Tubular Design Guide 20: Background and design basis

Author = Key, P.W. and Syam, A.A

Publisher = Australian Steel Institute

ASI Number = 501

Date of Publication = 2014

Tubular Design Guide 20 underpins the new Tubular Connection Series by providing historical and international perspectives on tubular connection design and the elemental connection theory that forms the common basis for all of the design models presented in the series. TDG20 draws heavily on the design basis documented in Handbook 1 of the existing Structural Steel Connection Series. The format and intent of the technical components of TDG20 is to provide sufficient technical basis to allow TDG20 to be a self-standing document, but at the same time, where substantive background technical basis is required, the reader may refer back to Handbook 1 of the existing Structural Steel Connection Series.

This publication is the first part of the set of 8 books and supersedes in part AISC 'Design of structural steel hollow section connections, volume 1: Design models' by A.A..Syam and B.G. Chapman, 1996.

This publication is unable to purchased separately. This is part of a set of 8 books titled Structural steel tubular connection series.

The connections included in the current Tubular Design Guide are generically associated with various configurations of fully welded connections between a chord member and typically two or more brace members where an overlap exists between the brace members along the connected face of the chord. The overlap between the brace members results in the brace member force being partially transferred through direct connection between the adjacent brace members, a distinctly different structural load path and behavioural model than that for gapped connections discussed in TDG26.

In addition to the usual K & N overlap connections, guidance is also provided for KT connections, the topology of which is a combination of K and T connections.

This publication is the eighth part of the set of 8 books and supersedes in part AISC 'Design of structural steel hollow section connections, volume 1: Design models' by A.A..Syam and B.G. Chapman, 1996.
