allowable stress in stainless

I have a small structure  where we are going to use stainless steel plates to make I and T shapes to use in the frameing.  Is there a standard for determining allowable stresses in stainless?...would it be reasonable to follow the AISC steel spec?

RE: allowable stress in stainless

For stainless steel framing, you might want to check directly with AISC and local building Codes to determine if they have specifications for using stainless steel. I have seen specifications and building Codes regarding use of stainless steel, although it was more applicable to decorative versus structural.

RE: allowable stress in stainless

You can go through the NIDI.org or SSINA.com web sites to find information on SS in structural application.  I don't recall the source for the info difectly.
