RE: AISC 358

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I would just add that 358 will probably get incorporated to the new 2005 AISC Manual, which will soon be published and adopted by the 2006 IBC. It will have detailed design provisions for two prequalified moment connections. The RBS for SMF and the end plate for IMF. Additional work will be undertaken to include other connection types in the standard.

AISC 358 is not out yet. It has gone through most, but not all, of the formalities prior to publication.


There was a revised draft balloted in December 2004, replacing the Sept 2004 version, which was approved by the CPRP in January.


AISC 358 was originally numbered AISC 353, but it was renumbered (fortunately) to 358 to avoid confusion with FEMA 353. They are much different documents. AISC 358 more closely relates to FEMA 350, which provides design and detail information on moment connections. Much of the meat of FEMA 353 now appears in the new AISC Seismic Provisions 2005 (due out very, very soon) and the new AWS D1.8 (due out about the end of this year).


We'll go over all this stuff out our seminar Steel Connections: Seismic Applications 2005, starting next month in Buena Park and South San Francisco.

Is this the same as the chapter on welded connections in FEMA 353???  I originally had this saved as AISC 353.  Is this the same document.   Look at the "FREE DOWNLOADS" section of "Technical Resources" on the AISC website for the document link and errata.

	I am trying to get a copy of ANSI/AISC 358 but I am unable to find it at the AISC website.


	BTW what is the current status of this standard?
