RE: AISC 341 reference guides??

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The most cost effective seismic design guide was written by many of the same authors of the NEHRP, the ASCE 7 Seismic Task Committee, and the IBC seismic provisions. Some of the authors were also contributors to the AISC Seismic Design Guide. The NEHRP Recommended Provisions: Design Examples FEMA 451 is available on the BSSC web site: It is one of the best free seismic design documents available. A CD is available from FEMA.

Caution, the author of Chapter 12 is known to take a drink. Downloading this document will cost you 1 beer. (I drink expensive beer, wine, and cognac) Running a tab is acceptable.

Subject: AISC 341 reference guides??
Date: Thu, 1 Mar 2007 09:19:54 -0800 (PST)

I am unfamiliar with the seismic design requirements associated with Seismic Design Category D for steel structures. I know AISC 341-02 is a reference guide (per IBC 2003), and I have downloaded that document from AISC, but was wondering if those with more familiarity with seismic design requirements for steel structures could refer me to a good text book or other references to assist me in getting up to speed on the AISC 341 requirements.

  Thank you
