New Engineering Journal Publication Opportunity

You are invited to submit a design example problem and solution for review and possible publication in the AISC Engineering JournalAccepted submissions will be published in a new feature that is being introduced called “Design Examples.”  These submissions will undergo the same peer review process as currently is used for papers that are submitted.

AISC Design Examples are provided on the companion CD accompanying the 13th Edition AISC Steel Construction Manual. In general, all current design examples illustrate the use of provisions and other information in the AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings or Steel Construction Manual.  Submissions should exemplify topics related to these AISC documents or illustrate the use of the 2005 AISC Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings or the AISC Seismic Design Manual.  These submissions will be used to help expand upon the currently available set of AISC Design Examples.

The successful design example problem and solution will be concise, accurate, and illustrate the use of a provision or concept not already addressed in the AISC Design Examples currently included on the CD Companion.  Only design examples conforming to the 2005 AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings and/or 2005 AISC Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings will be considered.  Submissions must provide ASD and LRFD solutions in parallel; see the style used on the CD Companion.  In addition, the design example must adhere to the Engineering Journal author guidelines available below.

If your design example is selected for publication, it will be considered for inclusion in a future edition of the AISC Steel Construction Manual CD Companion and you will receive complimentary admission to an AISC seminar!

Please submit your design example problem according to the format indicated in the author guidelines, to:
