ASTM has released a new HSS standard, A1085 - 13 Standard Specification for Cold-Formed Welded Carbon Steel Hollow Structural Sections (HSS), which will result in the production of improved hollow structural sections (HSS), according to The American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC). This specification is a big step forward in simplifying HSS design and usage, thereby making it a more desirable option for HSS, AISC says.
