All volumes and design examples from the new handbook, renamed the Steel Bridge Design Handbook, are now available for free as part of the Steel Bridge Design Suite.
Release of AISC Certification Bulletin 2013-1
In an effort to better communicate with our existing participants, AISC Certification will begin releasing Certification Bulletins communicating program updates and changes. Certification Bulletin 2013-1: Current Participant Conversion to Standard Based Bridge Certification Program provides information required to convert bridge certified facilities with certifications expiring in August 2013 or after to the new standard based AISC certification program for steel bridge fabricators. Conversion is mandatory for all participants. This bulletin can be found at www.aisc.org/bridgecertification. If you have specific questions or concerns regarding Bulletin 2013-1, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
