AISC Steel Shape Lookup Program

AISC Steel Shape Lookup Program

AISC Steel Shape Lookup Program

I am trying to find a program that AISC used to have for download on there website. It was an actual program, not the excell files that are available now, that let you select the steel manual version and then the shape type and it would show all the properties for the shape. It even had the historic shapes. I believe it was a zip file.

Does anyone know where to get it now?

RE: AISC Steel Shape Lookup Program

I guess you are refering to "AISC Search Utility". That program is included in the CD that comes with the manual. I tried for the program on their website. But, excel sheet is what they made available online. You might want to call AISC and check with them to see if there is any other way you could download that specific shape search utility program. Good Luck!

RE: AISC Steel Shape Lookup Program

I have a copy one that was written by Alex Tomanovitch (sp?)and is available on the SEA of South Carolina website.  He has a bunch of useful sheets posted there.


RE: AISC Steel Shape Lookup Program

Thanks for the reminder. I will try to locate my CD.

RE: AISC Steel Shape Lookup Program

If you can't find it, I can post it for you...


RE: AISC Steel Shape Lookup Program


I found my CD that came with the blue steel manual. The program that is on the CD was not what i was looking for. It requires you to actually type in the shape your interested in rather than using drop downs that have all the shapes.

It may be different with the new black manual. would you be able to post the program that came with the black manual CD?



RE: AISC Steel Shape Lookup Program

The shapes lookup program used to be a free download from AISC, but now they charge $20 for non-members.  They've also upgraded the program, but you have to get the historical database separately.

I tried to upload the zipped file, but it was too large.

White Paper - The Criticality of the E/E Architecture
Modern vehicles are highly sophisticated systems incorporating electrical, electronic, software and mechanical components. Mechanical systems are giving way to advanced software and electronic devices, driving automakers to innovate and differentiate their vehicles via the electric and electronic (E/E) architecture. As the pace of change accelerates, automotive companies need to evolve their development processes to deliver and maximize the value of these architectures. Download Now
White Paper - Model Based Engineering for Wire Harness Manufacturing
Modern cars, trucks, and other vehicles feature an ever-increasing number of sophisticated electrical and electronic features, placing a larger burden on the wiring harness that enables these new features. As complexity rises, current harness manufacturing methods are struggling to keep pace due to manual data exchanges and the inability to capture tribal knowledge. A model-based wire harness manufacturing engineering flow automates data exchange and captures tribal knowledge through design rules to help harness manufacturers improve harness quality and boost efficiency.

White Paper - Modeling and Optimizing Wire Harness Costs for Variation Complexity
This paper will focus on the quantification of the complexity related costs in harness variations in order to model them, allowing automated algorithms to optimize for these costs. A number of real world examples will be provided as well. Since no two businesses are alike, it is the aim of this paper to provide the foundational knowledge and methodology so the reader can assess their own business to model how variation complexity costs affect their business.
