I have a question for the forum! We are about to do a new project, and the question has come up, regarding the minimum temperature that A36 structural steel may be used. I have looked all through the AISC manual and found nothing. The only thing I have found was relative to fire protection and elevated temperatures.
The project we are about to start has a design temperature requirement of -20F. Does anyone know of a document or standard that recommends changing from A-36 material to some other materail?
