A new AISC standard, Seismic Provisions for Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Structural Steel Buildings (AISC 342-20), will be available for public review from May 1, 2020, to June 15, 2020. 

The standard will provide provisions to be used with ASCE/SEI 41 for the seismic evaluation and retrofit of existing structural steel buildings, and is expected to be incorporated into and replace Chapter 9 in the next edition of that document.

The standard is available for download on the AISC website at aisc.org/publicreview along with the review form. Copies are also available (for a $35 nominal charge) by calling 312.670.5411.
