1997 Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings Incorporating Supplements No. 1 and 2 now available electronically

March 27, 2003 From American Institute of Steel Construction, Inc.

In response to requests from the steel design and construction community, AISC has produced two interim versions of the Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings that are available for free download on the AISC web site. One version incorporates Supplement No. 1 (dated February 15, 1999) into the 1997 Seismic Provisions and the other version incorporates Supplements No. 1 and 2 (dated November 10, 2000) into the 1997 Seismic Provisions. Even though the 2002 Seismic Provisions are now available, certain building code authorities continue to specify the earlier versions. In these interim documents, a sidebar is shown in the outside margins where revisions have occurred based on the supplements incorporated.

These documents will not be available in print. To download the document, click HERE.
