2010 T.R. Higgins Award Lecture: The AISC Seismic Design Provisions: Past; Present and Future

Since their initial publication in 1992, the AISC Seismic Provisions for Structural Steel Buildings (AISC 341) have undergone continuous updating efforts, brought on by numerous factors such as earthquake damage, new research results, and the development of new structural systems. Now firmly rooted in U.S. design specifications and building codes, the 2010 edition of AISC 341 continues this updating process through a series of technical changes and a major format revision. This lecture summarizes the background for the provisions and the changes to AISC 341-10 and postulates the future for seismic design of structural steel systems.

This course is based on a past NASCC session.
