You can download a draft of the new AISC Manual from their website.  Yes, it does have ASD and LRFD side by side.

Subject: ASD vs LRFD: Say It Ain't So

A young friend of mine who is a grad student at a local University mentioned that one of his professors has stated that "AISC is going back to ASD and away from LRFD."


I assume that he referred to the upcoming AISC Manual of Steel Construction which will, reportedly, have ASD side-by-side with LRFD in much the same way that the AISI CFS manual does.


Or is there something in the works that I don't know about? Enquiring minds want to know.
