The AISC 2005 Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings is now available for a limited third public review. This is a revision of the 2002 version of the AISC document under the same name. These provisions are intended for the design and construction of structural steel members and connections in the Seismic Load Resisting Systems in buildings and other structures. Among the major changes in the updated 2005 edition will be the incorporation of the Allowable Stress Design and Load and Resistance Factor Design methods into one document. Additionally, two new seismic systems will be incorporated: buckling-restrained braced frames and special plate shear walls.
