Responding to several private requests for the AISC Resolution (final, "on
the future of AISC Specifications") which apparently were received
corrupted by some in MS Word or WordPerfect format, here are both files.

{\plain Based on expert input from its Committee on Specifications, the Board of Directors 
of AISC affirms that the 1993 }{\plain \i Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) 
Specification for Structural Steel Buildings}{\plain  is the preferred Specification for the 
fabricated steel industry.  LRFD is a modern and technologically superior steel 
design specification.  Its direct representation of ultimate structural behavior is 
especially relevant for seismic design, design of frames with partially restrained 
connections, and composite systems design.  It offers engineers the opportunity to 
innovate in the analysis and design of highly reliable and competitive steel 
structures by encouraging the consideration of strength and serviceability criteria 
under appropriate combinations of gravity and lateral loads.  In this way, LRFD is 
consistent with the prevailing trend toward limit-states design in all structural 
materials, both domestically and internationally.\par
