New Edition of Extended End Plate Moment Connection Design Guide Now Available
June 28, 2004 From American Institute of Steel Construction, Inc.
The Second Edition of AISC's Design Guide 4: Extended End-Plate Moment Connections is now available. The updated guide was authored by Tom Murray of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and Emmett Sumner of North Carolina State University. The guide makes use of yield line theory in a new design philosophy for extended end-plate moment connections in wind and seismic applications, which allows extended end-plate moment connections to be designed using 50ksi steel.
The Second Edition of Design Guide 4 is available both as an electronic download (free to AISC members or $60 to non-members) or as a printed book ($30 to AISC members or $60 to non-members). For more information, visit www.aisc.org/bookstore.
Other new publications from AISC include:
- Design Guide 19: Fire Resistance of Structural Steel Framing. Covers the design of fire resistant steel framing, including building code requirements, fire protection methods and materials, standard fire resistance tests, and the associated rating system. Provides detailed guidance for the selection of rated designs for columns, beams, and trusses, complemented with comprehensive design examples and W/D tables for common protection configurations. It’s available as a free download for AISC members ($60 for non-members) or a hardcopy can be purchased by members for $30 ($60 for non-members).
- Updated Design Guide #3: Serviceability Design Considerations for Steel Buildings. While the First Edition focused on serviceability concerns in the design of low-rise buildings, the newly updated and revised edition addresses serviceability concerns with all structures and includes expanded coverage of topics such as floor levelness and drift criteria, as well as updated coverage of design considerations for skylights, cladding, and special equipment such as elevators and cranes. It’s available as a free download for AISC members ($60 for non-members) or a hardcopy can be purchased by members for $30 ($60 for non-members).
- AISC Detailing Cards. The new AISC Detailing Cards are a quick and handy reference for the shape, gage, and strength properties of steel sections and connectors. Detailers and other draftspeople working with structural steel can purchase the cards for $30 members/$60 non-members.
- Design Guide #18: Steel-Framed Open-Deck Parking Structures. The new Guide includes general information on open-deck parking structures, design considerations for both deck and framing systems, fire protection requirements, and durability. It’s available as a free download for AISC members ($60 for non-members) or a hardcopy can be purchased by members for $30 ($60 for non-members).
