Standards and major software to be used for Structural Steel Detailing

Steel Structural Detailing is a way tougher and demanding process that takes place before the construction. Nowadays Steel Detailing Service has grown in demand as a maximum of the construction industry is incorporating Steel in current building formations due its strength and rate of longevity. That’s why the application of steel detailing is turning rampant in construction industry via structural steel industry. Steel detailing is not merely an independent process that takes out manually but it also has its share of specialized software and specific standards. Steel Structural Detailing is regulated by certain industrial association that supervises the procedure about “How” as well as “What” software to be used that can provide incredible speed and accuracy and take the project at unparalleled level.

Steel detailing is as follows as the designing and drafting of tie-in between the steel beams and columns in tremendous steel frameworks that forms the basic structure of most of the high-rise building which is nowadays a constant case in western hemisphere. The design of these connections is essential as the disassociation of any beam of columns can lead to subsiding of steel framework and moreover the building hence the loss of many lives. Thereupon, there are stringent standards that followed for Steel Structural Detailing which varies from country to country and assembled by established industry of respective countries:

  • China Steel Construction Society
  • Malaysian Structural Steel Association (MSSA)
  • Steel Construction Institute (SCI- UK)
  • Taiwan Steel and Iron Industry Association (TSIIA)
  • Japanese Society of Steel Construction
  • The Steel Construction Institute
  • The Southern African Institute of Steel Construction
  • World Steel Association (formerly IISI)
  • EUROFER, the European Confederation of Iron and Steel Industries
  • African Iron & Steel Association
  • Arab Iron & Steel Union [AISU]
  • British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA)
  • Brazilian Steel Institute (IBS)
  • Iron & Steel Institute of Japan
  • SBI Swedish Institute of Steel Construction
  • Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC)
  • American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC)
  • Korean Iron & Steel Association
  • Malaysian Structural Steel Association (MSSA)
  • Norwegian Steel Association

After the designing of structural framework, the steel detailer starts the evaluation of forces functioned on each connections. That follows the consulting to design tables to arrive at certain design details of connections which includes material and dimension of the brackets, nuts and bolts that expressed in the form of erection drawings. Steel Detailing Service is employed with certain specialized software namely SAFE, SDS/2, Tekla, SAP2000, RAM, PCA, STAAD, RISA and ETABS.

With the above specifications of standards and software of Steel Detailing, it’s not surprising to conclude that how steel detailing has evolved in such a major and vast discipline that became the important part of construction industry.
