Hilti supports update to AISC 341

AISC 341-16, “Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings”, was recently released.  Prior versions of the standard prohibited the use of Power-Actuated fasteners to fasten steel deck to a beam flange within the protected zone, in a variety of Moment Frame and other assemblies. In 2011, Hilti teamed with Prof. Matt Eatherton of Virginia Tech University to conduct new research and present the results to the AISC committee to address this restriction.
