The Aluminum Association has released the 10th edition of the Aluminum Design Manual—a reference for design/construction professionals working with the material in structural applications. The guide is referenced in the 2015 International Building Code (IBC), and it allows engineers to create safe and innovative structures using modern, lightweight, corrosion-resistant aluminum alloys. Chapters of the guide include “Specification for Aluminum Structures,” “Commentary to the Specification for Aluminum Structures,” “Material Properties,” “Section Properties,” and “Design Aids.” Illustrated design examples of more than 30 structural design calculations are also included. To purchase the guide, visit www.aluminum.org.
