AISC Manual containing tables for the smaller W6 & W4 Sections

thread507-364186: 14th edition AISC Manual

I am looking for the newest AISC Manual that still has axial and flexural capacity tables for the smaller W-sections.

I found an older Eng-Tips thread that mentions the 1989 9th edition, but I noticed that this edition is pre-LRFD. Is anyone aware of an LRFD edition manual that still contains the smaller sections? If so, which edition?

My office does designs for waste water treatment plants and water plants that still use these sections in some of the simpler buildings and generator covers. I ran the idea up the flagpole; that maybe we should update some of the designs and standard details. I got the "if its not broke, then we don't need to fix" response.......

Thank you in advance.

RE: AISC Manual containing tables for the smaller W6 & W4 Sections

I have not seen one myself. you could create your own chart to match AISC.

RE: AISC Manual containing tables for the smaller W6 & W4 Sections

LRFD 2nd edition (i.e. the silver book) has column and beam tables that go down to W4....

Thank you! The silver book is available on amazon for ~$10, which is great!

White Paper - Using Virtualization for IVI and AUTOSAR Consolidation on an ECU
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicle’s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
