AISC Seismic Provisions

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I was looking through the Seismic Design Manual and noticed that in the specification section 8.3, Column Strength, they require the required strength times factors to exceed 40% of the nominal axial strength of the column. Don't they really mean that it should be less than, not greater than? I couldn't find any errata where this is mentioned. And yes, I do have the revised version that replaced the original one that I bought.
