Prepared by the Structural Applications of Steel Cables for Buildings Standard Committee of the Codes and Standards Activities Division of the Structural Engineering Institute of ASCE. Structural Applications of Steel Cables for Buildings, Standard ASCE/SEI 19-16, provides requirements for the structural design, fabrication, and installation of cables for use as static structural elements to support and brace buildings and other cable-supported structures. Covering both carbon-steel and stainless-steel cables, this standard addresses roofs, floors, curtain walls, masts, and nets, but it is not appropriate for structures subjected to vehicle loads or for guyed electrical transmission towers. Topics include contract documents and shop drawings; design considerations; cable materials; protective coatings; fabrication, shipping, and receiving; erection; and postconstruction considerations and inspection. In addition, appendixes review cables and fittings, saddles, clamps, cable fatigue, and the design of earthquake-load-resistant sway bracing for nonstructural components of buildings. Intended for use by structural engineers, architects, cable manufacturers and fabricators, and building officials, Standard ASCE/SEI 19-16 updates previous editions of ASCE 19 with a new appendix to address small diameter cables used for seismic bracing of nonstructural building elements, updates to nomenclature for consistency with industry standards.

... Engineering is an interesting and vast field. New technologies are discovered or invented every day, and the older ones must get updated In the past, engineers used to search libraries or go through various books to keep up with the recent technological advancements or find the solution to various problems. Nowadays, it is possible to do so with the help of just one click.
