(Chicago) - The American Institute of Steel Construction invites comments on the current draft of a new standard that will apply to the retrofit of structural steel buildings subjected to seismic loading.

The document is available for public review until May 20, 2019.

The new standard, Seismic Provisions for Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Structural Steel Buildings (AISC 342), is intended to be used in conjunction with ASCE/SEI 41, as a replacement to Chapter 9 of that document.

The standard and review form are both available for download at www.aisc.org/publicreview. Copies are also available (for a $35 charge) by calling 312.670.5411. 

Please submit the review form with your comments to Cynthia J. Duncan, AISC's director of engineering, by May 20 for consideration.
